Pulling from psychology, I am attempting to create an experience akin to a Rorschach inkblot test. The viewer is pushed into a reflective dialogue that forces self-awareness, a sort of Jungian confrontation with their "shadow." The interaction between the figures serves as a symbol for the struggle we all experience with not only others but within ourselves.
To transfer this idea to a physical form, I begin drawing on Mylar with charcoal and ink. Then, using a light sensitive process of printmaking, I exposed the plate directly from the drawing. Once the solar plate was made, I used “à la poupée” inking technique to print it onto rice paper.
Handpicked to show at The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art in Brooklyn
