printmaking

In the screenprinting studio I usually build images as I go, haphazard more than reproduction of an image I’ve already made. I usually work on multiple prints at the same time using a bunch of screens that have image stencils on them. I use a loose registration system and try to experiment with juxtaposing colors and/or characters to create different pieces with different interactions between the characters (when they are figurative).

Also there is a pretty much constant discussion inside my head about my conflict between pleasure and responsibility. And what it means to be angry and sad all the time under this political situation. What it means to be happy and take pleasure when things are terrifying and brutal and unjust, and what does it mean to deny oneself pleasure and give those fuckers that too?
