Linergy : the synthesis of line and energy

After viewing these prints as a whole, I realize the lines themselves create an energy on the paper. This draws attention to the relationship between space and mass, the natural attraction of any object to another, and an awareness of the energy creating that attraction. The prints are my marks on paper. They are created through the combined process of transfer printing and direct manipulation using printing ink and paper. The image is drawn on to a plate and then transferred to the paper by utilizing a hand held roller. Once the image is transferred, more lines are drawn by stretching and manipulating the ink directly on the surface of the paper. Inherent in the process is the element of chance and accident that adds vitality and excitement. Each print is an extention of myself creating the flow of lines as a unique expression. The work is an illusion of movement on a flat two-dimensional surface. (See more in text.)
