Artist Statement:

Throughout life, we build, we save, we destroy and we let go. As we live an as we look towards the future, we are often not conscious of that which we leave behind. Linger: Things Left Behind is a series of monotypes that explores the things that get left behind during life’s process. The imagery presents an intimate look at things which have gotten left behind, ranging from a 17th century Spanish castillo to the toys and dreams of childhood. The series began with a collection of photographs which were digitized and then modified to emphasize their emotional content. The images were printed directly onto plates and then transferred to paper.
