MITER SERIES '19 – '22  

We all carry polarizing emotions of deep grief and rapture. With this series, I deconstruct my personal moments of divergent emotions, and feelings of marginalization, to either repair or relive these dichotomous experiences, with the hope that you too, can recall yours. 

 

A “MITER” is a union formed between two edges that meet at an intersection. The foundation of my work begins with unrecognized artisans who fabricate manhole covers, architectural grids, and moldings. 

 

To execute, I rely on topical catalysts of urban lattice work by collecting repetitive geometrics as inspiration. The symbolic image in this MITER series begins with a photograph and digital manipulation of a street grid used to help the blind at an intersection. Eventually they take on organic form as I constantly reduce and redefine ordinary markers of existence, provoking one to rediscover the unnoticed and ubiquitous splendor of the unobserved and bring the outside, in. 

 

This assemblage series merges my competence as a graphic designer and fine artist using an unusual combined process of photography, cyanotype, digital manipulation, lithography, monoprinting, silkscreening, oil painting, resin and collage.
