Ido Suru (Migrate)


Ido Suru (Migrate): monotype, collage and stitching on paper, 30″ x 20″, 2013, $850 (available at Cole Contemporary)

A swarm of shapes swim across a weathered crevasse. This piece evolved from a single photo that I took of a beautifully-textured crack in a stone wall. I collaged that photo together with some of my monotype prints, then layered on the fish-like shapes in tan, brown, cool blues, and black. Structure and movement were then added by stitching the layers with fine lines of sewing. The resulting piece feels like a moment captured in time. (Part of the Urban Skin series.)
