Commissioned Project: Our Roots Run Deep
Commissioned by Topic.com as part of their Federal Project No. 2 series, Our Roots Run Deep examines how chemical companies curate their image and deliberately conceal their past. Using Roy Stryker’s depression-era hole-punched negatives as a compositional tool, the project repurposes historical and contemporary photographs, and employs circle interventions to collapse the distance between past and present.
Project narrative here.
I'll be spending a month at Blue Mountain Center, a gorgeous artist residency in the Adirondacks. Stay tuned for updates on new work!

The artists in this exhibition are also breaking with tradition, rebuffing the commonly intimate scale of contemporary collage. The large scale of their work beautifully illustrates the power of the medium. The energizing, bold collages of Rina Banerjee, Manuel Ocampo, and Travis Somerville read as brave declarations. The kaleidoscopic work of Sanaz Mazinani mirrors the inescapable collage of digital media permeating our daily lives. Ben Venom’s iconographic quilts are a sassy blend of collage and punk rock. Ray Beldner and Anne Weber’s creatural forms literally bend the medium by bringing it into three dimensions. The delicacy and seamless detail of Lisa McCutcheon, Catie O’Leary, and Kirsten Stolle reflects their use of paper as a tool for mark making, becoming as much drawing as collage. And Efren Alvarez and Mary Anne Kluth both succeed in tickling the mind with their edible, pulsing colors palettes and playful materials.
