Limited edition of 50, signed and numbered
2-color Risograph: Red and Steel archival soy based inks on archival paper.

Risograph printing was developed as a quick and inexpensive method for reproducing color copies in the late 80s. The Risograph is an environmentally friendly and cost effective printer which uses soy-based inks to produce unique outcomes (each print is a little different). The underlying technology of a Risograph is very similar to that of screen printing. The original image file is sent to the machine and it is burnt onto a master, the master is then wrapped around a print drum. This drum then rotates at high speed which pushes the ink through the screen and onto the paper as it is sent through the machine. Each color requires a separate ink drum.
I have my risographs printed by Authorized to Work in the US, a printing press owned and operated by Cem Kocyildirim out of Brooklyn, NY.

The Latchkey Project

Using vintage dolls, spray paint, plaster and alcohol inks I've been working to capture the lost-in-place feeling of the 1970s latchkey kid generation.I make a plaster mold for each latchkey girl. I then use alcohol inks to add color. The girl is individual but trapped in limbo; her originally vibrant colors are now faded and blurred. I then take a macro-photograph “portrait” of each latchkey girl. This image can be used in collage, professionally printed directly onto glass,or on canvas via ink transfer. The larger photographic portraits capture a dreamy “lost” quality. Using hundreds of vintage keys as stencils I create geometric patterns directly onto the glass or canvas. Ultimately each latchkey girl is buried under layers of spray paint, plaster, glass and paper- but each retains her own individual characteristics.I am working towards one hundred plaster latchkey girls.
