Just returned from teaching a multi-pass monotype workshop at University of North Texas'  P.R.I.N.T. Press. I was proud and honored to be back, as it was there, fifteen years ago, that I fell in love with printmaking.

New Print

For a long time I've been interested in dimensional/sculptural prints. Matter of fact, that's what I focused on in graduate school-where I made a series of printed paper garments
On a little lighter but similar note, I'm starting a series of foldable relief prints.
Here is the first one:
This reduction woodblock print is titled is Outbound Plane.
Here are a couple of images of print itself, and further down is stop animation video of the print being folded.

Give me a shout if you would like one, or make similar work.

Art of the Book Exhibition

I'm proud to have co-curated the Art of the Book Exhibition, that will open on October 30 at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington. From Pyramid Atlantic's archive, Anna Spelman and I chose 40 works of art that include books, prints, and portfolios-that we felt exemplified a strong sense of concept, was visually engaging, and related to the book as an art form.
Please come to the reception: October 30, 2-4pm
Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington DC, Goldman Art Gallery
6125 Montrose Road, Rockville MD 20852

Paper, Rock and a Mother of a Thousand

Fascination: plants growing out of cracks in rocks. When I'm hiking and see this phenomena, it makes me wonder how long (years, decades?) it took for that to happen, and it makes me consider how all of those necessary elements-dirt, water, sun, had to be present. What timing!
So, I've been making some paper 'rocks' of my own. I pigmented the pulp, strained it, and formed it into the shapes, sort of similar to pinch pots. After they dried a bit, I put a little soil in the faults, then planted a Mother of a Thousand seed.

I'm curious to see what will happen to the paper rocks as the plants grow. Will they crack? Will they decompose? Or will the plant just only get so big....I'm thinking that is what will happen.
Anyway, I'll keep you posted.
