“Reclaim” – Etching



 Architectural Salvage

Revitalization – Etching

Architectural Salvage is a new series of original hand pulled etchings, lithographs and serigraphs that have been completed over the past 12 months. It is my first solo exhibition. It was my aspiration to create a cohesive body of work and to enhance my imagery with the use of multiple plates while exploring the interplay of these three printmaking methods.

The exhibition is focused on the concept of overlooked and discarded architectural details. Raised in San Francisco, I was exposed to a many forms of urban architecture. It was, however, the historic and traditional elements of buildings that captured my interest.

While urban renewal projects are important to the revitalization of cityscapes, it is often to the detriment of such classical features.  Concerned with their disappearance, this exhibition seeks to present the beauty of often-discarded architectural elements and to preserve them through my art.
