I am extremely excited to share my first print release with the esteemed Paper Monster(http://www.papermonster.net), which will be happening today at 12 noon EST. The Dust Blows Forward, And The Dust Blows Back is truly a labor of love that has been in process since October of last year. The image is a 38 inch diameter linocut, that was carved entirely with a scalpel, to preserve the extremely delicate detail of the piece. Each one of these edition of 10 images has been hand painted in watercolor by me, with the process of painting taking 3 days to complete. Though the images have a template in terms of color that they adhere to, I have approached each image as an experiment at how far I can push the watercolor to heighten the image.
This image marks a return to printmaking, from which I had taken a sabbatical in pursuit of my greater understanding of working with paper. I approached the making of this and future prints I have planned with the same care and attention to detail that my work has become known for.
