“Flux” is about change and moving through life. Growing as a person and the importance and significance of objects and communication. Everything from a Popsicle on a hot day when you’re a kid, to the power lines that keep us connected to the world around. The airstream that may have inspired moving, the plane that took or will take us to a new destination, the camera that documented a moment in time.
Each piece began with a drawing which was then transferred onto a print block and carved out. From that point I decided whether it would be on a painted background, then the color of the ink or acrylic paint to print the block onto the wood. Most of the pieces have many layers but with the appearance of simplicity. To finish off the pieces and to fully appreciate the vibrance of the colors, I coat them with a two part epoxy resin. Any “imperfections” in the resin I consider to be the way the art wanted to go.
This show was inspired by my nephew Forest and his exit from childhood to his entrance into the world as an adult.
