The project described here evolved from two driving sources: the frequent, close observation of roadways and parking lots I use daily, and the unexpected, hidden wonders to be found in these continuously changing asphalt landscapes composed of painted lines, odd markings, scrapes, skid marks and tread marks; and, the desire to push against the limitations of conventional printmaking by exploring alternative printmaking techniques.
Much thought went into this project, along with a willingness to experiment with various processes. I embraced current technologies such as the digital camera, computer manipulation, and the ink jet printer. The work also reflects my love of using unconventional means—in this case, drawing as well as printing with tires and hand-cut stencils, all layered on top of digital prints—to achieve the desired effects.
