I examined the relationship between the two dimensional and three dimensional art. I observed a relationship in content in the prints and sculptures of artists such as Joel Shapiro and Richard Serra. I wondered if I could create a similar relationship in my own practice. Additionally, I wondered how the art would change when I translated the formal elements or process from the two dimensional plane into a sculptural work, and visa versa.
Through an experimental process and extensive trial and error, I discovered how to create a relationship between the two dimensional and three dimensional. Moving from one medium to the next, I realized that the link I created between my work was focused on process and technique.
