Before moving to LA, I took some time away from the city to start a new body of work in a material that I would learn to make from scratch and apply to my practice with the intention to extend the material to larger sculptural purposes which would take technique, alchemy, experimentation and method. Ink is ubiquitous - historical, political and conceptual. The 'ink stick' is cultural and touches on my personal heritage and experience. Working with the transformational properties of the material (organic) I am also able to express another dimension to my work. Starting in 2014, the works below show a progress of my control of the material and the process at which I continue to become it, and it become me. In essence, blood into ink. Works showcased on this page are studies, exercises and notes, in hand-made ink MORE COMING SOON
