New Work

These new works on paper come out of several years on a deep dive into color, the origins of pigments and color theory. Oxides, are one of the oldest pigments available and provide a wonderful range of warm tones you see here from soft yellow to purple into blacks. The blue is inspired by indigo a plant based color that has a deep history world wide in dye. This dye was developing in several cultures around the globe simultaneously as if mother earth said we need blue. 

 

So with my deep connection to machines and tools I began to play with oxidizing the tools and machine bits - what you see here are some of the recent results of this journey I am happily traveling.
