Pushing the boundaries between printmaking and sculpture has been one of my focuses to make a more dynamic relationship with the viewer.
I extended my prints to outside of the frame and related it to architectural elements, like a pillar, a ceiling, or corners of the wall. Considering utilizing the right-side wall in the Kaplan gallery, I create a wall installation which is an open expression of leaks of the emotions, the secrets, the relationships, and the paradigms that the architectural space struggled to contain then hiding deep underneath the surface. But sometimes there is a leak, and all those hidden feelings, secrets, ideas, and relationships burst through.
