Building 6W  Floor 2  Studio H

My works are journals of personal and communal tellings. “I have come to my garden” is a series of scrolled nature journals of my garden, Song of Songs, plant life cycles, and my pregnant self. I make them with cyanotypes, an early photographic printing process used to record nature and make blueprints. To make the negatives for the prints, I digitally manipulate photographs of nature, personal writings, and Biblical and other communal texts. I arrange and layer the negatives onto chemically sensitized papers, expose them to sunlight, and process in water. The processed papers turn a brilliant Prussian blue. Sometimes, I layer multiple printings and collage actual plant materials into the prints. The layering of photos and text within the images, mirror the layering of my memories of nature, myself, and my community. The intentional fading of the texts alludes to the simultaneous absence and presence of the memories.
