Printing By Hand

With a small set of tools and a block of wood a person can create art.  The process of printmaking is a journey where the artist learns about their idea through the materials they use.  Each decision must be considered for now and in the future print.

Carving

Every print starts as a drawing (usually in charcoal) on the board.  As I carve the image, the drawing is erased.  This allows me to focus more on the carving, and less on strict adherence to the idea.  The process of carving will bring its own ideas to the piece.

Printing

When it is time to print the carved block, I do my pressing by hand.  Hand pressing means that I do not create many editions of my prints.  It takes time to create good prints by hand, but it also allows me to print on different scales and materials.  Also there is a chance for editing the print during pressing.

Editions and Blocks

Since I press by hand most editions are only 10 prints.  Once an edition is completed, I will carve the edition date into the block.  This means that the edition cannot be re-printed and that I can make the blocks available to collectors as well.

The Red Chair is a new installation exploring our subconscious and the part it plays some of our social interactions.

Deep Space Communication


Deep Space Communication


Today communication feels instantaneous.  This is a relatively new phenomenon and probably short lived.  As we travel further into space it will take longer and longer for signals to reach us.  At a certain point it may will take longer than a human lifetime for communication to happen.  Yet that won't stop us.  This work explores communication over time through art and the way cultures try to pass on their important ideas to the future.
