Some of my current work focuses on printmaking and illustration that draws on the historical language of printmaking and its power to disseminate and create social ontologies that human beings come to inhabit. This current body of work has developed out of my interests in researching and diagramming various perceptual and social ontological positions that have in general been historically abstracted, into unintelligible, empty or monstrous entities. I try to analyze the consequences of this abstraction of these figures, of these spaces and of these narratives. In the process of doing so, I also advance in this work the possibility of new perceptual and social ontological positions by making a different use of abstraction. I use traditional printmaking techniques such as copper plate burin, engraving, etchings, woodblock printmaking, lino-cut printmaking, CMYK offset printmaking, mono-type and experimental methods.
