A couple of my wonderful and - interesting buyers - at Bellevue Art Festival, Bellevue, WA, 2016. They have a fabulous home in Seattle and the perfect spot for my collage titled, "Eastbound".
Collage is an artistic technique where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms creating a new whole. It is one of my favorite forms of expression.
'Shiroi ki' translates to the words white trees in Japanese. The following is a poem that fits the feeling I am trying to convey to the viewer....." Wrapped in a blanket against the cold night. Like a paper-wasps' nest in a black-and-white birch tree dusted with snow;Like the wick of a hundred-times-dipped beeswax candle, awaiting the flame." ~Unknown
I am at my Epson 7600 wide format printer printing one of my abstract digital images of urban entropy, a weathered rusty metal surface. I seek out these shots with my Nikon D-90 in scrapyards, alley, and other rough outdoor urban areas. I print the image on hot press cotton fiber paper and use archival pigment inks to create my prints.
