News and noise
Mori is my open-ended series that combines photography and lino cutting
so that I can use my hands to explore creatures and skeletons that I am
unable to touch. I convert my pictures of specimens from museums around
the world into extremely fine-detailed lino cuts. These are either
printed conventionally as they are to show the fine detail of these
animals, or used to create monoprints that hint at the life and energy
they once held.
