Swatches of Order and Chaos

An ongoing series of limited edition intaglio printed collagraphs created over the past 7 years. The patterns created with carborundum (a fine grit) are adhered to the plate with wet ink or spay paint and sealed in order to be printed in the intaglio manner like a traditional etching. The imagery depicted is derived from a variety of sources, as diverse as: natural forms, script fonts, and Indian stone carvings. The enlarged marks are intended and long thin format alludes to the proportions of microscope slides.
