The ritual of performance is an ephemeral moment whether it be in the form of an intentional constructed artwork or an unintentional human interaction.
The prints become a stage and the figures hold that moment, engaging with the world and others. A place is found and, within that context, the memories of ancient and new grow and emerge.
The medium of monotype is a transient form of printmaking, usually creating only one image with the possibility of a ghost, feint and shifted - but then the original image from the matrix is lost. Figures emerge capturing the fleeting essence of movement as a metaphor for human identity and connection.
