The American Dream is a Lie
This piece was created during the winter of 2012 when I was an artist in residence at Atelier Circulaire in Montreal, Canada. I spent my days working closely with master printer, Carlos Calado, printmaking on a lithographic offset press for the first time. In the evenings, I would spend time in the computer lab to explore digital art approaches. The figures in this piece began with drawings that I scanned and then combined with monotypes I had created years prior, in 2010 and 2011. The piece shows various figures intersecting one another, forming a lovely, but disorderly chaos.
