surreal automatism

Call Again

The duke’s affect has no cavalier

beneath a hundred others

beneath the company of a great distance.

I take for myself a type of types

following grey trucks that scream smoke

for fears of drapery on the head.

After this, he is not found again.

For me, he’s a man, always alone

I do not know how to say

I do not know

with a distant voice

I hope you do not know

who writes this.

I am not an assassin.

I have a year and a half to prevent this

In the end you will remember that I am innocent.

No, in the end you will remember.

The Funeral, 2017

cyanotype on hand-coated rag paper


I’m continuing to utilize the cyanotype process to combine found photography, original photography, and pen+ink drawings to create these prints.  More ghosts, more light escaping onward.

Signed Originals are available through the Artist.  Please contact me for pricing and availability.

Curious Symbol of Lictors

Revel ocean’s of a notion

not ion’s an, cat lion’s man

lawn’s lex lictis lictor’s bash the-

united we stand, divided by heroes

Me: Yeah I know turns out I’m just really not into blatant animal abuse haha who would’ve guessed
