I started a project in 2020 with a new source material and medium. 

Taking scrap plywood and printing uniquely selected compositions directly on the wood, I kept its patterns visible, inviting the wood to interfere with the image. The trash plywood sheets with their natural patterns show up as repetitions of ornaments on the surface and make perfect backgrounds for the motion based work.

LIGHT works TERMINAL

My second series on the plywood is called “Light works Terminal.” It's a series of photos of oil tanks I made in Northeast Philadelphia along the Delaware. I was especially caught by how the sunlight plays on the huge, rough surfaces, while a few objects would stick out to cast lines and elongened, elliptical shapes of shadows on their whale-bodies. Ladders and numbers reappear on these pieces along with the changing light and the play of shadows, forming constellations with the wooden patterns that give the series a fresh, poetic air.
