Description

A watchtower guards an arid landscape as workers toil in the sun. A dystopian scene along the border wall, perhaps? About 8 years ago I experimented with placing iron filings and rusted objects between damp pieces of paper. I wasn't entirely pleased with the results, so put the stack of paper in a plastic bag and forgot about it. I found the bag again this year, and was delighted with the rusted, aged and distressed paper. I proceeded to do a series of prints, called Rustscapes. This print includes linoleum block, collage, and collagraph techniques. It is mounted on an 8" x 8" wood cradle, ready for hanging. Three layers of polyurethane coating protects the image, which can be dusted with a lightly dampened cloth. This is a one-of-a-kind original work of art.

Printmaking is my passion. I love the challenge of creating an image using linoleum blocks: how to convey shape, volume, texture, and movement using only the binary of black and white. I also love the physical process of making prints. Carving a block reminds me of the rhythm of walking, and creates a meditative mood. Printing a block by hand includes the excitement of the first reveal -- even if I've been carving a block for weeks, the final print is still a surprise. I hope you will find my artwork to be challenging, surprising, thought-provoking, and fun. Thank you for visiting!
