Print Series: UNSUITABLE
In 2013 the writer and publisher Debra Di Blasi invited me to collaborate with one of her NY authors, Jane Rosenberg LaForge. Jane’s uncanny bifurcated memoir grabbed my attention. I loved Jane’s writing and the multiple layering of story, time and image. In Jane’s book, The Unsuitable Princess. The settings resonated with my ongoing interests in the re-mix and the mash-up.
I choose to situate various drawings and paintings into 3D lenticular print files that includediterations of the baroque, Ming, and other dynastic histories with references to modern architecture, kitsch, urbanity and nature. While the book displays the flat print version of the lenticular file construction, the works are published as 3D Lenticular print, hyperbolic medium activated by the viewer through an optical lens.
