Indirectly Attached 3 & 4
The Indirectly Attached Series
"Many of my prints from 2013 and later have focused on the theme of connection. While several pieces from the Plus a Century portfolio are focused on the interaction between mother and child or between children, after two years focused mostly on isolated portraits, it took some time to coax my figures back into each other’s picture planes.
The gradual process began with a series of prints in which garlands, ivy, and bunting were used to metaphorically depict the character of our relationships to one another. This physical link between figures could be restraining, loosely held, tied in knots, etc… to show the different ways in which we experience attachments to others."
