These works are based on colorful and one of kind patterned monoprints and monotypes using my etching press. These prints are then cut and assembled into collaged artwork echoing midcentury modern art. In some cases, in addition to the handprinted paper cutouts I will incorporate oil paint. This body of work was inspired after viewing the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition at MOMA in NY 2014. It has transformed my portfolio to now include abstract artwork. Hanging this artwork will inspire me to curate my assigned space with color/design works bringing forth the sense of a new and nostalgic experience.
