Unknowingly, I was beginning to manifest while walking the streets of NYC. My emotions mandated my aesthetic gaze as I began to notice the repetitive beauty of angles, shapes, grids and geometrics underfoot. I abandoned comfort by rolling black-inked brayers onto street grills to collect their impressions, while fearing strangers asking me questions, watching me, or getting caught.
This sequence of work provokes one to notice an existence of the unobserved. What I find astonishing is that random individuals are the creators of these grills and painted door jambs, but become redefined by my artist’s eye recognizing the splendor in the beauty of the unnoticed.
My series emerged from travel, my personal freedom from depression and letting go and is called “MITER” which is a union formed between two edges that meet at an intersection. This notion resonates for me literally and figuratively as I look back at my recent life’s progression.
This series merges my competence as a graphic designer and fine artist as I deconstruct and reconstruct grids using processes such as digital manipulation, monoprinting, photography, painting and collage.
