Printmaking has allowed me to use the authority of the printed multiple in a variety of ways. I have explored the possibility of using traditional lithography to create mock historical prints that parody the notion of American aristocracy and play with concepts of taste and class. I admire the autographic drawn quality of lithography and have also used the medium to reproduce spontaneous theater-of-the-absurd doodles and random sketchbook entries.
While I usually print from stones, I have begun to experiment at home with drawing on ball-ground aluminum plates. Not having access to a litho press has led me to try printing plates using a relief press. Look for more images and plates soon.
