Ripples in space —

The Void is Not Empty
Started in 2014, this print series is part machine-made/ everyday-objects survey, part transformation, part meditation. These are handmade prints where images are created using the machine made shapes – boxes of products I consume. As I use the boxes as stencils, images portray the absence of the object, the void, and its ghosts, marks left on the plate after an object has been removed as the plate goes through the press a second time. 

22" x 30"

water, fire
earth, air

the ultimate brave effort
not an act of despair
zones of immaterial perception
source of wisdom
connections of time and space

the void remains vast and unexplored
the illusion we are separate
the voice of emptiness

the leap into the void
desire to fall
in the end, space
symphonies without sound
