the New Nature, Part I, 2007

Screenprint. 8 x 8 inches, edition of 12 with 4 artist proofs.

I made this for a class print exchange.

At the time, I had planned on making it the first of a series, each portraying a facade of contemporary architecture, with the idea that these surroundings are, to me and those around me, as natural as anything else we encounter–the New Nature.


Untitled (Sea Turtles), 2007

Screenprint. 10 x 10 inches, edition of 5.

My very first screenprint!

I took a summer course at Pratt, taught by the lovely and talented Kristen Ramirez. I’d recently had a dream about sea turtles flying over the Seattle cityscape, and when I put the memory of it to paper, the image became much more ominous: the turtles weren’t in the air… the city was underwater. For a first attempt, this was pretty ambitious. Including a final translucent layer for sheen, there are seven colors in all!
