"Aurora Road"


My Aurora series of original varied-edition block-prints were inspired by my fascination and love of the Northern Lights along with my desire to explore printmaking by drawing and carving into sterilized styrofoam meat trays as a means of recycling a product destined for the dump due to no styrofoam recycling infrastructure where I live. I first apply 2 layers of watercolor using poured sky technique, then press the designed and inked styrofoam template onto the paper by hand, adding a final layer of splattered acrylic color. 5"x7" artwork matted to fit an 8"x10" frame. This is #4 in a limited run of 75 varied edition prints. Price $60 matted to 8x10", $80 matted and framed to 8x10".
