About The Artwork

Limited Edition Print "Mendocino Elegy: The Fires, 1/10" Paper size: 31x39.5" Image size: 23 x 31.5 inch with 5" unprinted white border. Also available on canvas. When is a sunset a forest fire? This piece is one in a diptych made in response to the unfolding tragedy in Northern California. The loss of the wine country is not just the individual losses of home and life but of an ideal, our vanishing American Arcadia. I compose my prints from multiple photographic captures of the architecture, textures, weather and other elements of a particular place, blending them to invoke the dynamic process of decay and renewal. This print is composed of my original photography and acrylic painting, digitally blended and produced as a limited edition print. This print is meticulously proofed and printed on Hahnemühle German Etching, using archival pigment inks rated to last for 100 years or more. The prints come with a certificate of authenticity verifying the edition number and the edition size. Prints are traditionally numbered and signed in light pencil with the number on the left and the signature on the right, just below the image. They are intended to be float-framed with no mat as shown in photos, but can be matted with an approximately 1/2 inch space all around to reveal the signature. Prints are sold unframed. Canvas prints are available as special order.

Throughout my work I explore impermanence as it occurs in the urban landscape and in nature. My architectural prints and mixed media pieces focus on the radical reshaping of the built landscape through gentrification and de-industrialization. As we are confronted with change and our relationship to it, I am interested in the question of how much of the past we value and hold onto, and how much we let go to make the future our “now.” My work lives on the edge between nostalgia and accommodation, mediating through the elements of surface and iconic structure to a conversation about history, identity and sense of place. I have been a calligrapher and letter form artist for much of my professional art career, creating well known brandmarks for film, books and packaging. I have created custom typographic identities for Kitty Kelly, Clive Barker, Naomi Judd, and Anne Rice among others, and movie titling for Dreamworks and Walt Disney. As a fine artist I bring my passion for mark making and the architecture of letter forms into the abstract realm. I have a calligrapher's subtle sense of surface and texture, and incorporate calligraphic mark making into many of my pieces. I use photography, digital composition, printmaking, mixed media and collage, shifting as needed to suit my subject matter. I embrace new media and the infinite ways in which the analog and the digital can be shaken, stirred and poured into a new creative form.
