Ongoing Bathtub Rituals

 

This video depicts the process involved in making the piece "Pink 

Tiles"

 

Pink Tiles-2011

Acrylic and Watercolor on paper (2 sheets) 

43 by 30"

After giving Zachary the opportunity to blast liquid colors at

the half-completed montypes, the paper was thoroughly soaked in

colors. The reverse side took a chance imprint of the tiles, resulting in

the finished piece shown below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interviews -- Artist Book

The idea for the book emerged from a series of prints made by integrating

children's mark-making, texts of conversations with imaginary friends,

and answers to art related interview questions. It became a take on

bedtime storybooks as well as the traditional artist/ poet collaborations

in illustrated book form.

 

Hand printed and bound book. 12" by 9.5"

22 pages, 11 intaglio prints, with letterpress text.

edition of 3 plus one artist proof.
