Menus for a Wildly Unreasonable Dinner Party. Screenprint, folded into popcorn balls:  Watch Unfold   2019


Unwrapped evolved out of an affinity for saving discarded bits of colored paper. One of my collections includes process marks I cut out and label with the name of the packaged product. This book separates these printer's color blocks from the actual food or object, zooming into textures and colors so distant from the manufacturer's packaging.

pretzels - orange - saltines - blue - bread - ochre

With Unwrapped and other projects, I am interested in subverting everyday ways we receive information, through hidden color & pattern, as a way to find new meaning in everyday objects.

Colors
Like shapes, colors are the building blocks of learning. At an early age, we learn primaries and their compliments; warm and cool; light and dark. As seen throughout the history of marketing, color has a peculiar and powerful affect on mood and how products are advertised. This book invites viewers to consider their own perception of color and its affect on one's consciousness. I printed and bound this book during a bout of rainy days in Athens, GA simply to enjoy flats of bright color while the days were grim.  The making of this book also helped become more familiar with letterpress printing. The pages are printed letterpress and utilize polymer plates, pressure printing, and handset type. There are a few digitally printed elements, as well.


The Head and the Art
This collaborative project, initiated by University of Georgia Master's students Taylor Newman and Megan Prescott, paired artists and scientist together with the goal of communicating science to non-scientists in an engaging way.
Exhibitions:  Creature Comforts, Athens, GA (Dec 18 - Jan 27, 2019); Science Library, University of Georgia (Nov 30 - Dec 17, 2018) 

What's in the Air? monotype with chine colle, 24" x 18" 

Yohanna White researches atmospheric chemistry, specifically, black carbon in the air and how it contributes to climate change. I spend most of my time in the printmaking studio, experimenting with materials and exploring color interactions. While our studies feel worlds apart, Yohanna and I found overlaps in our work and personal lives, as well. We love the outdoors and therefore care about air quality. Our research is dependent on light and shape. Through our conversations, I learned air molecules absorb and scatter light differently, based on their shapes. This piece is a monotype made with ink and paper, hand-rolled through a press. The shapes of colored paper are symbolic of soot in the air being affected by the light. My hope is that the viewer would be able to discover some of Yohanna's large ideas through playful visual representation.

"It doesn't matter what you do, he said, as long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardner will be there a lifetime."
-Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
