This work stems from a call to make posters on the theme of the future of education. The artist was tempted to represent new technologies, but then I decided to tell something about themself. They drew a child who is not understood and isolated. That child believed for a long time that he was wrong, and only through good teaching did he discover that he had a talent, which today he has turned into work.
This body of work is meant to reflect the times that we are living in through digital collage. My intent is to raise public awareness about political, economic, and social issues that impact the world around us in hopes of sparking vital social change.
This ongoing series ‘Mind Body’ is inspired by the artist’s healing journey over the last 7 years after a medical misdiagnosis. This work references the recovery, withdrawal, and process of healing from this and other childhood trauma. The artist’s hope is to help others heal by being vulnerable with their own journey.
For this personal project, the artist came across this scene in lower Manhattan that was stereotypically New York. A street under construction, very old buildings with a very old deli, graffitied walls, indifferent people, and a cat in the window. It was a very bright day and the smoke was so dense and white, making the whole scene beautiful.
Glow is a narrative non-fiction picture-book about light. Lumy, the glow-in-the-dark rabbit leads an exploration of the science behind night-time glow in its different forms. It was inspired by the artist’s work as a scientist, and the joy of printmaking with unusual colours. Pages are risograph-printed with a glow-in-the-dark layer screen-printed on top to create dual “daytime-nighttime” images.
