Mixed Media, Mixed Ideas, Synergy

I've been continuing a body of work about maids that tell a story about power, class and human relationships. They explore themes of subjugation and the nuances by which people try to maintain their identity, dignity, and independence. Their black and white uniforms define a role that depersonalizes them but elements in their environment reflect a rich psychological existence. Each character is caught in a place between reality and a world that is deformed and shaped by the people who control their environment. The image above is mixed media relief print. This series of mono prints combine traditional printing methods with collage, chine-colle, powdered pigments and hand-printed paper flowers. Additional images of select prints to follow in 2018.
