An Irrepressible Twist Print Series
An Irrepressible Twist is a print series that explores human connection and pokes fun at the seriousness of traditional portraiture through the use of repetition, humor and process. This is achieved by focusing imagery on a singular person’s interests such as llamas, corn, or cacti and dramatically changing the scale. These monotypes were created by combining intaglio collagraphs with lithography or relief techniques to create unique textures, color combinations…

Museum Item #15773 Book
Museum Item #15773 is a risographed book that examines the permanence of some of my artistic failures through humor, specimen logic, and a futuristic context. I try to come to terms with the consequences of material permanence through a narrative that takes place 500 years in the future where archeologists are conducting digs through landfills…
Faux Rock Collection
The Faux Rock Collection is a mass producible geological collection that can act as an aesthetic substitute in a dystopian future where there is nothing left to extract. I use everyday materials to embrace the man-made quality of the forms. The remnants of these materials in which some of the pieces are cut out of…
Extraction Print Series
Humans are an eroding force. We physically shape the Earth to retrieve precious remnants held deep within our planet’s crust. Within my prints, I have been separating landscapes into segments based off of geological diagrams…
Acadia Artificial Forest Installation
I have been interested in exploring my personal relationship to nature though the creation of a 6’ x 6’ artificial forest using recycled materials. This artificial forest serves two purposes. First, is it possible to recreate the calming, isolating, and immersive headspace I feel while being out in the woods? And second, what would an artificial forest created hundreds of years in the future after all the trees were cut down look like…
These understructures of my futuristic landscapes function as aesthetic experiences that place the definition of landscape into question and how we examine the environment as a larger system through an ecological blend of the virtual and physical realms.
Futuristic Landscape Propositions
The year is 2213. Earth is no longer habitable due to the long lasting effects of climate change. Humans have always been an eroding force, physically shaping the landscape to retrieve precious remnants held deep within the planets crust. This eroding tendency is still present as humans are in search of a new home, one that blurs and transplants traditional Earth landscapes with alien digital worlds.
This selection of risographs, screenprints, and archival digital prints form the foundation of a post-anthropocene narrative in which humans rebuild nature in the aftermath of the climate collapse.
My work is an archive of objects and printed matter for a post-climate change world. Using specimen logic, landscape theory, isolation, and the glitch to reflect on this future, I question the definition of landscape and how we examine the environment as a larger system. This work calls attention to the barren aftermath of the environmental crisis we now find ourselves in and are destined to face.
