Artist statement on Papilio Monoprint Series
During my residency at the Playa Foundation in the Spring of 2016 impacted my art in compelling and unfamiliar ways. Having the opportunity to observe bird migrations and to experience Playa’s unique ecosystem and constantly shifting climactic conditions reinvigorated my creative practice. The work opened up to a new colorful pallet, and references to landscape creeped into the imagery. My time at Playa activated a new interest in geological history and how the landscape alters over time.
