PERSONAL WORK > birds of paradise

Birds of Paradise is a collaborative project with my partner, printmaker Andrea Narno, which explores distance, longing, and the connections we have to place through our relationships to plants. In this collaborative installation we filled the White Page Gallery in Minneapolis with risograph prints of the plants that connect us to each other and the plants that connect us to our home towns New Orleans and Mexico City. In the center of the installation are several collaborative relief prints of these plants which we made during a residency at The Future, and which fill our collaborative zine.
