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

This piece is a bit of a puzzle, with interlocking block-like shapes. Underlying the piece is a grid of six squares in tans and grays. The squares are a mix of photographs I took of weathered walls combined with my monotype prints in similar colors. I stitched the squares of paper prints together, and criss-crossed them with arching stitch lines for movement. The final layers are black, white and tan cell-like shapes that float over the grid below. This piece has a quilt-like feeling, and yet is also a study in shape and texture. (Part of the Urban Skin series.)
