Shadow Rosette on the Face of the Moon, 2018




This drawing has been framed in a museum quality, hand-made frame by Pranayama framers, Brooklyn, NY. 'Shadow Rosette on the Face of the Moon' is part of a series titled, 'After the Disaster,' that focuses on the strength and fragility of the natural world. Delicately rendered through a labor-intensive process, my compositions are meditations on time and inner projections of both the disasters and triumphs of imagined land and mind scapes – personal, cultural and ecological in scope. This work was created from a practice that combines projection, stencil and improvisation. My earlier 'Polymorphic Disasters of the Mind' series developed out of my perceptual observations of the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, 2011, on a stretch of endangered watershed along the Hackensack River in northern New Jersey near my home. The subject of disaster and its ruins became a metaphor for the anxiety of our economic and ecological decline. 'Polymorphic Disasters of the Mind' evolved into 'After the Disaster,' an ongoing series that imagines worlds born out of the rubble. 'Shadow Rosette on the Face of the Moon' is one in my series, 'After the Disaster,' which takes on a nonhuman perspective and considers a time after our own. This isn't a dark or pessimistic place, it just is.
