It is said that some people are perpetual rainclouds. I am most definitely one of those people. More so, I dwell upon the events that occur under my raincloud. It is with this in mind that I have chosen to document some of my more rainy moments and thoughts. As these moments are singular events, I have chosen to use a diazo monotype process to ensure that each piece is as individual as the moment that inspired it. Recurring symbols of typically associated with destruction such as bullets, razorblades, and guns rain down throughout the work. They are constant reminders of the dangers of living under the perpetual raincloud. But all is not lost, as life often flourishes following the storm. It is during these calm times that we evaluate what our dark moments have taught us, enabling us to better endure the raincloud’s return.
