Galaxies, Utopias and other Ecosystems

Alongside recent installations that were very physical and collaborative, I’ve set aside a few hours each week to work privately in my studio on these prints. Layers of silkscreen and digital images appropriated from ongoing installations are collaged into made-up landscapes. I thoroughly enjoyed writing my MFA thesis and the research for the document has inspired these works.
