The Multiverse of Possibility EV 5/5
This body of work consists of six experimental prints about the many ecosystems and living beings that exist on planet earth. It's a metaphor for our deeply interconnected relationship to nature, and the many possibilities that exist for our future. The compositions are abstract renderings of animals, sea creatures and plant life.
This series was created from shapes that were cut from my monotype designs, each arranged into a unique composition. The process began with the printing of the full monotype sheets in a range of colors. The sheets were then cut down into stylized parts and collaged onto blank white paper. Many of my print editions in 2015, including this one, were inspired by Henri Matisse’s cut outs. Upon stumbling into an exhibit of his work in New York, I was deeply moved by his approach to creating color sheets and cutting them into unique compositions. Multiverse of Possibility evolved from the series 50 Lovers and Creatures of Earth, which were my first significant attempts at abstract collages.
