Succulence, 2005

Southwest Series

This series of work was inspired by field work in the desert of Arizona and New Mexico, where  I sketched, collected photographs of plants, and made notes about impressions of the place.  The photographs were directly printed onto cotton or silk cloth as the foundation for making the works.   A few more of the works are located in the “Technology as Catalyst” tab.
