NP-C (amor fati) is a series of collages that considers time as a broken lens, not linear or cyclical but kaleidoscopic. All works in the series are generated from elements of past studio works, invoking their hand-printed histories. Works on paper are cut up and collaged onto inkjet prints of newsprint backing sheets – byproducts of the printmaking process. Each collage is a navigation of the terrain suggested by the newsprint image – the color, marginalia, and residue that are found there. Each collage is also an intervention into the past by current events, both inside and outside of the studio.
