The law of conservation of energy tells us that nature is not fixed, but rather it is part of a system of energy transference that is in constant flux. Ocean waves are perhaps most engaging, since it is here where this movement of energy in nature is most dynamic.
In recent works, pen on paper drawings and screenprints on plastic act as the photographic negative and are printed using the cyanotype photographic process.
