"This book gathers a select number of prints from hundreds of evolving editions of dry point etchings that I have produced continuously, largely unseen for the past 20 years. They reflect situational epiphanies and a particular set of private moments, with the hope of connecting universally through the experiences we share, yet in which we often feel at our most isolated. Often bearing the self imposed artificial gravity of multiple selves under personal paperweights, Riley (the cow) transitions from private gestures into recognizable, performative public language. This book reveals glimpses of Riley that are presented to perform in your own context, albeit just for a moment." - Rachel Salmon-Lomas August, 2015
