Do you have collections of objects which act as memory triggers of special moments of time and place? Objects with symbolic meanings which if transformed will help spiritual/emotional transitions?
I can create a print for you made from your objects. Mail me your objects and provide me whatever imagery, mood, colors, etc., you associate with that moment and/or place. I’ll create a few plates and show you some inked prints. You pick the one which feels right.
Objects must be no larger than 5 inches in size.
Include a self-addressed, stamped return packet.
Since 2007 I’ve been hand printing relief abstract landscapes, still lifes and figurative works from found discarded objects. During my everyday walks, I collect the objects. At the end of the week, I compose relief prints from that week’s cache. Colors seen during my walks determine the palette for each print series. They become a record of that time and place.
I chose to recycle supermarket Styrofoam trays as printing plates. I press the found objects into the tray. I print with Akua non toxic soy-based intaglio inks.
The resulting images are improvisational explorations of line quality, shape relationships, and tonal and color intensities. The juxtaposition of the objects determines what emerges.
