Where We All Belong & Thrive

Monotype Collage on Handmade Korean Hanji Paper
36.5 x 48.5 inches

This piece is about ecosystems and our relationship to the natural world. The shapes represent interdependence, and the rejection of hierarchy. This work is about my own desire to realign my relationship to nature.

This oversize collage was assembled from shapes and figures that were cut from my monotype color sheets. Many of my prints 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.
