Hitotsu Ni Naru (Merge): monotype, collage and stitching on paper, 30″ x 20″, 2013, $850 (Sold by SAM Gallery)

This piece started with a photograph I took of 2 holes in a metal panel. I loved the patina of the metal, and the way the holes seemed like something you should look into. Using the colors I saw in the patina, I created a series of monotype prints that I then collaged together with the photo. The shapes I chose are reminiscent of 1950’s graphic elements. For me, this piece has movement and intrigue.
