For this series, I worked only with materials found in the print studio: old inks, old plates, and the legendary oversized press of St Michael print studio. As I worked, I realized I was engaging with improvisation similar to the jazz compositions I was listening to. My studio jamming produced images that evolved organically without set plans or rules, just responses to my materials and recorded by the press.
The East Coast Series, produced at the Saint Michael Print Studio in St Johns, Newfoundland, responds to my previous series, the West Coast Series produced in Vancouver. Their parallel titles are based on the idea of a jazz ensemble and improvisation.
