This is the last piece from my Senior Exit show. I didn't manage to photograph it sooner because it was a bunch of last minute hectic madness. And this one was still wet in its frame :P I liked how the clouds in the top interacted with the mountains, and I wanted to challenge myself to describe the softness of the clouds with something as defined as relief printmaking.

Relief print, 15"x22", silver and black, 2 layers.

part of the idea is connecting the flower language of the Lotus, which is purity, calmness, and sacredness with the image.
Also lotuses are tied with Buddhism which this temple, part of Horyu-ji is very important Buddhist architecture as well.

*I am re-uploading this picture. Sorry about the hassle T_T*

This is a relief print I did for my BFA Senior Exit Show. It is made using a five layer reduction. I started with a bottom layers as a flat blend roll on the bottom from grey to transparent. I continued to use blends in almost every layer but with a lot of transparency in the ink, so that the bottom layer would continue to affect the layers on top.

This series is about my ideas of spirituality, Buddhism and nature. The idea of the forest as a temple and the idea of mystery.

This print is 3ft x 2ft and is printed without borders on Japanese kitakata paper.

So this is the monster that I have been slowly chipping away at for an entire semester. This is a lino relief print and it is the most difficult piece I have ever done. It is 18"x36" printed on kitakata paper. It is as photographically accurate as I could make it. I tried to carve every twig.

Long time no update. The reason for that is that I have spent the last 6 months working on this monster linocut. This print is for the Emerging Artist Residency that I have been doing through the Atlanta Printmakers Studio. I actually had to snap pictures of it and it's mates today before I pop them into their frames and hang the show on Thursday. The entire thing was drawn onto the linoleum and carved with a little speedball cutter. I just inched across the block at the speed of a snail. This tree is from the Smoky Mountains.

My friends are like "didn't you learn ANYTHING" [link] Apparently not, but god dammitall I can carve anything after this.

EDIT: This print is 24"x36" printed without borders

Print is now available on Etsy [link]
