Divorce Papers

Prints from Grain series, writing about parents’ divorce, adhesive, water, 2019, 11"w x 12"h

Processed woods artificially compress different wood pieces together into one, creating beautiful and often chaotic patterns. In this way, processed woods like OSB, or oriented strand board, represent a departure from the individual experience and are instead a culmination of memories, experiences and origins. I explore my own memories through wood-derived material that I have altered through printmaking and writing. I have used my own prints on paper, personal writings and recycled wood material to create a series of papers that represent this compression of past experience.
