Revealing the tenuous nature between the present and the imaginary.
Water is part of all life on Earth. Looking at a morning fog rolling in over the Lower New York Bay, I realized that much of previous work was trying to understand what the world would if it were only water. These studies examine visual and haptic elements of aquascapes created through the real and the imaginary. Coincidentally, water was used to create both.
Translation of landscape through printmaking.
These three collagraphs use hyperbolically crocheted textiles and layering to translate the landscape into a water-based print.
Reimagining the landscape with color and texture.
Using those features of the aquascape, I overlayed images of dripping and running tap water onto the previous color composition. Again, using Photoshop, the image was manipulated so as not to resemble what it initially looked like.
