is an aesthetic exploration of deterioration. The textures created as a result of natural processes acting on inorganic structures form endless narratives. As a printmaker, I investigated ways to transfer the textures and patterns in the found objects that I was so viscerally attracted to into my prints. The result was a monotype process that, like the forces acting on my three-dimensional discoveries, is highly uncontrolled. By directly transferring texture and pattern from the discovered architectural sources and objects into my prints through mold making and rubbings, each piece acts as a fossil, capturing the temporality of the objects’ continuous decomposition.
