Image Statement: This work is printed using a large collection as well as some new linoleum carved blocks. Working within the moment and across many artworks at the same time this work layers pattern, imprints and colour together. I choose to reuse works keep them alive, allowing them to be reworked and purposed over and over. Pushing against pressures to keep creating new, bigger, better, I want the things I make to resurface continuously throughout new works and want to allow the patterns each to evolve. Throughout I’m considering individuality and repetition. What does it mean to have something that’s hard to recreate exactly? Does it change our relationship to the hand process?
