End Transmission

An integral part of this series of drawings is size. You’ll notice below that the actual size is rather large, especially for a drawing. I love drawing’s physicality, and part of that is the size in the case of this series. At this size, the work becomes larger than the average person, and really become […]

Brothers detail 1

Brothers

Drawing was always my first love. Like most kids, I grew up drawing. I used to draw pretty incessantly, when I had a lot of down-time (read: time I had to spend in some sort of class). Now I don’t draw as much, which I’ve made peace with. However, I treat drawing as a finished […]

Lead monoprint

Lead

Monotype from wood with stencils 2010 In this series of prints—the small, square monotype specifically—there are two groups: the circular prints and the color band prints. This monotype obviously falls into the second group, and while I have been working primarily abstractly for the past ten years, they reference landscapes. This is not particularly a […]

Iceburn

Iceburn

Monotype with spray paint and pencil additions 2010 This particular print evolved through many different stages. I’m exploring some ways to bring the more spontaneous mark making processes to printmaking through the incorporation of drawing and painting on the print. The linear elements and organic pain spatter are great foils for the rigid circles and […]

  Monotype from wood with stencils and pencil additions 4.5″ x 4.5″ 2010 As I have discussed elsewhere, the intersection of drawing and printmaking is a place of interest for me. I am always looking for ways to combine the two, and this print is certainly no exception. Drawing’s immediacy, as well as its raw […]

Lost Sounds

    Monotype from wood 4.5″ by 4.5″ 2009 This print was inspired by a painting that I saw in a gallery. The painting used a very similar palette of subtle shades of while. It seemed like a worthwhile exercise, so I decided to create a print using the same palette. Indeed, it was challenging […]

Drawing with charcoal is  a really important process to me. It’s about the most physical and expressive method I have to convey ideas visually. This drawing explores some of the ideas that I’ve been working out in my prints lately, though obviously in monochrome. Charcoal and pencil on paper Approx. 58″ x 20″

This group of images was part of an incredibly fun project that I took part in several years ago. It is a set of collaborative prints that I completed with Beth Pearson and Holly Hauser (whose site I can’t find), through the Burlington City Arts Print Studio. During the span of a couple months, the […]

Social System Deconstruct

  When layered with the other colors, it doesn’t look that bright, but I always like to use a bright color as a contrast to the neutrals. It’s one of those situations where one wouldn’t have half of the impact without the other. • Monotype with wood and stencils on buff paper

  This particular print was one of the first ones that I started in this 4.5″ inch square series. It took me a really long time to finish, though. It was just one of those prints that needed more, but I wasn’t sure what. It ended up as a contrast of subtle values and bright […]

The Adolescent

The Adolescent

The symmetrical, but slightly off composition is one that I like to exploit frequently. Especially with this series, symmetry seems to happen naturally, and it’s a composition that I’m naturally drawn to. Perfect symmetry, however, gets kind of boring. It always has to have something…off. In many cases, the natural world is like that, and […]

Working with wood as a vehicle for the ink in this series introduces another unpredictable element to these prints. That’s an important element in my work: the more anal it becomes, the more I have to introduce random and uncontrollable elements. Says something about my personality, I suppose. Regardless, working with wood automatically incorporates organic […]

  As you can see, I’m really enjoying the layering of colors in this series. The ability to layer like this is certainly unique to printmaking, as well as being its most appealing characteristic to me. With a little planning and mental vision, you can achieve quite vibrant colors that contrast with deep, murky ones. […]

  I’m starting to explore mark-making on prints. I realize that this is neither groundbreak, nor all that particularly adventurous. For me, however, the surfaces of prints are somewhat sacred. I have always sought to make every mark on a print via a plate, and to some extent, that’s still an important artistic challenge to […]

  This is not a landscape in the traditional sense. It was never meant to be a landscape and doesn’t resemble a specific place. Regardless, I can’t help but see it as a landscape. For quite some time, I’ve been really fascinated by the way nature juxtaposes color. This is, I suppose, my feeble attempt […]

I have been busy. Really, really busy. Anyway, the above is an image from the series of prints that I’m in the middle of. I’m not sure where I’m going with them, or what happens next. I like what’s happening, though, so I’m just going to roll with it. Monotype with wood and stencils 2009

I wasn’t thinking too hard when I was creating this image. Not to say that it was something that I made without making conscious decisions, just that it seemed like an very natural image at the time. As I look back at it, I think it is somewhat of a pivital moment in my work; […]

This print sums up several interests that I had, at the time I made it. In short, it is very much an image about Vermont to me.

A friend of mine brought this print in to a crit for a class he was taking with Kiki Smith. She liked it. That makes me happy.

This is honestly one of my favorite prints that I’ve ever done. I’m not going to say it’s the greatest print in the world, but I’m just really happy with it. Etching with aquatint, drypoint and chine collé.

This is an etching from a series that I did a little while ago. It had a lot of states. Enough so that I can’t even start to guess how many. I feel that it’s one of my more successful prints, though to me it seems like one of the most Surrealist-inspired images that I’ve […]
