Get Stuck in Trees

Series of mono prints, letterpress and transfer printing/drawing, 2016, 12 x 18 in and 22 x 30 in (series varies)

This text/image project began in Summer 2016 at the Penland School of Crafts (NC) as part of a workshop with Marianne Dages, and continued in my studio in Washington D.C. and then later in Urbana, IL. The poem is composed from found text that I randomly cut out of an article. A selection from the series was exhibited, along with Beauty Piece, in the 2016 Faculty Exhibition at the Krannert Art Museum.

handing out flyers. of trees.

Maybe at her own expense
and pro bono
A key moment
It now strikes me as
women had been totally
letters so small you needed

bones enclosed
“I grew up with a trillion
four sides
are not recycled, she
privatizing spirit
also offered a symbol
