Circles

I started screen printing in 2017, and I’ve become entranced by the halftone process. It overlaps with my looking/seeing and alternate perception interests. In preparing these photographs, I am pushing the halftone to billboard size, obscuring all detail. The images become circles within circles and color overlapping color. Only with a great distance can you make out what the image is. I was thinking about making peace with my sister when I made these images of sunsets, goldfish and flowers.  Simple joys. Each photograph has been printed through dye sublimation – using heat to transfer dye directly onto aluminum. This method removes the necessity for glass over the works, making the colors and shapes seem more immediate, more magical.
