Vitrines, is an edition of variable zines produced through risograph printing. The zine documents my life through memories, all collected through the intrusion of thoughts. I’ve created this work to poke fun at what should be documented & showcased in the fine art world, while utilizing methods & production techniques from graphic design. It is printed in non-archival soy risograph ink to make comments about the preservation of objects and artworks by museums. As I am interested in both art & design, this project is a way for me to address both audiences & career prospects. There are typed entries like a diary or book & drawn images like a sketchbook or an illustration, but I play with legibility by not directly drawing lines between these elements. I want the reader/viewer to know both too much & simultaneously nothing. The work is an emotive relic of my memory & life, yet it is presented with little context in the white wall space.
I’m a Portland-based artist & designer who creates organic, textural, and expressionistic work; rendering from intimate relationships and my love of music. My work embodies companionship, courtship, and a plethora of squiggly lines. Creating in mixed media, I produce digital illustrative projects that root from analog media scans. My archive of textures is an amalgamation of found surfaces, cellphone photos, ink mishaps, and a variety of other scanned items. I have exhibited work across Oregon, including Carnation Contemporary & Clackamas Community College’s Harmony Gallery.
