I was invited to submit work to an anthology of artist’s interpretations of the Sandwich, to be published in 2013 by StarGods Press, an independent publisher based out of Toronto, Canada.
My medium of choice is ceramics, but I have also been working in digital printmaking and screenprinting. For this project, I wanted to use the aesthetics of traditional 2-D cell animation. After creating a sandwich form out of clay, I photographed it with a model. The final print will be two layers – the photograph of the model holding the sandwich that has been desaturated of all color, laying underneath an acetate layer of just the sandwich and cord. This acetate layer will be printed in color. I am exploring many ideas in the studio, but for this project I am interested in the idea of ‘overlaying’ vibrant, lively information over a base layer of blandness. This project will be printed large-scale, at least 35 inches wide. I plan on this being the first of a series of acetate-overlayed large scale photographs.
