Studio Resident (2012)
Statement of Work
The printmaking matrix serves as a constant that allows me to explore the illusory and ambiguous aspects of visual by introducing variables of color and composition. My examination of color and form shifts the viewing experience from a purely visual to an immersive sensorial experience.
Informed by my background in psychology and design studios, my recent work utilizes interference patterns to investigate the correlation between the printmaking process and human
perception. The moiré pattern simultaneously represents errors that occur during the printing process and the limitations of our perceptual systems. This inability of our eyes to process certain visual stimuli causes a discrepancy between actual and perceived vision, which can create the illusion of movement within a static image.
