"Art expresses the time and place in which it was made; expresses the personal and communal experience of the artists who made it; and expresses the "laws of art", of perception and visual organization." Fred Martin

I have been investigating an art/science collaborative and the result is a body of work that utilizes traditional, alternative and digital materials, resulting in a unique approach to printmaking. The body of prints celebrates an academic collaboration between art and science and displays a unique look at nature, form, function, and marvel. To marvel at something is the beginning of knowledge and these prints, in turn, spark investigation. Far from inhibiting their originality, an inward knowledge of tradition and fundamentals provides a firm foundation for these prints both in experimentation and discovery. The active participation of research combined with the physical task of creating these images seek to attract viewers outside traditional realms of printmaking; and the result I believe is a unique body of work that focuses on my sensibilities as an artist and individual.
