My print “Nerves” is part of a group of three prints dealing with the energies of the body as the subject. With “Nerves” I used a Lazertran photocopy transfer method to create a subtle image of neurons as a background field. I added another copper plate to the image in order to deepen the space, to enhance the color relationships, and to create a dialogue between the hand drawn lines and the more photographic element. I have sought to create a visual atmosphere with this piece and free the lines from the representation of forms. There is a specific energy to each mark and line that can create a sense of fluidity and open-endedness, leading the viewer to multiple interpretations of the imagery.
