"EXPRMNTS was my first print series that experiment with a new abstract style of printmaking. Instead of trying to recreate imagery from what I saw in reality I let myself create images that came from places inside my own mind. In many of my other fields I am completely about control and planning, while in printmaking I have been moving away from control and expectations of reality. Not only is the imagery created in this series different from what I have created before the process and technique are also different. I created these plate using a unique of stopping out and etching that I had not before, as well as using types of grounds in a way that is not suggested to create new textures within the plate. I have printed multiple colored series of this three plate, three color, print and plan to continue to experiment with the series."
