Contemporary Printmaking and Painting
Physical trips, as well as spiritual journeys, are filled with memorable ‘moments’, or stopping points. Waypoints have existed since humans began traveling. They are found in distinct rock formations, a certain bend in a creek, or a stand of trees. A waypoint may be at the time of decision making, or the breath that you take as you pause – just before you continue on your way.
A thought or bit of an image along my journey may be portrayed by the use of wood veneer, the graphic elements of relief or intaglio prints, or flashes of photographs that I have taken. My work may hold photos of nature that captures the woods of Wisconsin or the open fields of Colorado, adventures of my children, or even bones of long ago mammoths. These depictions are simply glimpses of the journey.
The destination is finite. Waypoints are endless.
