The Makeshift

How can abstraction communicate a sense of place? This series uses the printmaking process to search for connections between abstraction and the makeshift environment of my childhood home. Using photography, found objects from the home and mono-print etchings, this ongoing series continues to evolve as these changing fragments build up and come together.
