Miter Series 2019-2020

With this series, I rely on city lattice work by rolling black-inked brayers onto city streets to collect their impressions. My downward, aesthetic gaze leads me to repetitive beauty of geometrics underfoot. This sequence of work provokes one to notice an existence of unobserved portals into a subterranean system that has been redefined and manifested through my artist’s eye. Eventually, the geometrics become organic as I am constantly reducing them into irregular form. Additionally, in my practice, I am discovering metropolitan areas and their chronicles.


A “MITER” 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 a combined process of photography, monoprinting, transfer lithography, digital manipulation, painting and collage.
