Apophatic Folly. 2007-08. Solarplate prints.
Collages of transparent and opaque plastics create hallucinatory architectural landscapes. The experimental hand-pulled intaglio solar prints are footprints of those chimerical constructions.
The title represents the enthusiasm of a hypothetical builder and is derived from an analogy between the process of solar printmaking and the concept of apophasis or affirmation through negation, a way of telling what something is, by telling what is not.  In the case of printing black and white solar prints, the denial of solar light and ink will determine the look of the final piece.
