In the winter of 2012, I decided to take my phototypes in a new direction. Instead of the compressed collaging of my earlier "Guilty Pleasures" series, I wanted to open up the visual space with the use of ink washes. The first works produced some exciting results and I enjoyed the dialogue that my Kitsch objects began to have. Unlike the noisy chatter of a cocktail party, these new works were more like afternoon tea by the pond.
