2016 Fantasm Series:
Cyanotype prints with archival inkjet layers.
This series of prints were shown in the exhibition Under Pressure: The Art of the Hand-Pulled Print, an invitational printmaking show at the Durango Arts Center, Durango, CO. The Fantasm Series was created to speak to the moral, cultural and political themes which saturate the history of children's book illustration since the advent of off-set printing. I dug up vintage illustrations that speak to the less reputable aspects of human experience and reframed their messages. In specific, I aimed to address negative attitudes toward the sexual nature of human beings and reexamine them in a positive, playful light.
