greetings from Millersville University.
I've been participating in an artist residency here since September. I decided to take on the challenge of moving to a new state by myself chasing after yet another shop in which to continue printing and expanding my body of work. I've learned a lot about myself and what it really means to be a "working artist". I've also learned quite a bit about what it means to try and start over somewhere new, and the reality that every single person you've ever known or loved now lives somewhere different.
I read somewhere recently that isolation creates authenticity.
And authenticity is the only path to vulnerability.
I had the chance to participate in the Litho 1 class last semester here at Millersville. It was really great to delve deeper into a medium that had completely scared me in the past, and I know the litho process was a really great learning lesson for all of us in impermanence. Learning to let go, and knowing that anything can change in an instant. Below are a few images of stones that never made it to complete prints due to some technical error:
