A series of ghost monotypes on Asian papers. These prints respond to the violent processes of printmaking in a performative collaboration with the materials. Handmade paper bears the traces of a similar, crushed sheet, no longer present, whose complex forms sit in tension with the basic geometric signs of human presence on the planet. Reduced in size, the crushed paper ghost recalls both human trash and interdependent ecologies.
