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.
