Coronations follows the theme of the book Coronation, taking imagery and rubbings directly from New York City’s architecture. The rubbings are inked with Sumi ink and then printed. The monoprints and rubbings alternate between almost transparent Gifu Shoji paper and opaque Rives BFK paper adding both a tactile pattern and alternating levels of transparency. 

Coronation 

Oil burning 

flame crowned 
the Mother of Exile’s 
City shines

Spiring 
Skywards

Eiffel geysers
deep rigged 
gearing 

banshee grinding 
undoing hearing 

We are its fuel 
We are its tool

Haloed mountain kings
unwanting coronation 

from the low cities 
glowing 

we the moths
flowing 

to capitals fire 
flickering 

out torches
smoking crows
