Imprints is a system of plaster castings taken directly from my own body. Revealed within each casting is a physical memory of living gesture fixed with graphite.

The impetus of this work stems from my fascination with the human figure—the layers of skin that protect and identify, and the supporting structures that give it form and movement. What may often be considered as flaws—wrinkles, scars, rolls of flesh— become curious maps or landscapes.
