Shaped by Play

This body of work includes monotype prints and wooden block pieces dispersed and assembled along a white gallery wall. Familiar forms repeat, magnify, stack, fall, and climb; oscillating between solid forms and flat prints. Shapes become personified characters, the aerial view of a landscape, the close-up of a pebble, the top of a mound; they are symbols to sketch deeper meaning, and elements to turn and hold to light.

The prints and assemblages are not exact depictions of one another, rather, imaged narratives coalesce into similar conversations of play and place. The work circles around David Aaron's definition of play, "To look at something every which way."

Materials for this project were funded by the Willson Center for Humanities and Art.
