Horizons In The Wind

“Horizon In The Wind” expresses my love of repeating patterns and my need to both create order from chaos and make art that provides a peaceful and meditative experience, where I can lose myself in the creative process. This is one of a collective body of work called “In The Wind”, a series of visual artworks, along with an accompanying poem, that are based on a recurring dream I have where I rise from the ground and fly over land. The overall design is also a repeating pattern when printed in multiple panels alongside each other, or digitized. Each of these artworks were created by hand printing my carved linocut onto varying types of paper, including rice paper. In some cases I pretreated the paper with acrylic inks. Relief printing is an ancient printing technique where the artist carves a design into a solid block of material, in this case linoleum. Once the design is complete, the block is inked with a roller. Paper is then placed over the block and hand rubbed or run through a press to transfer the inked design onto the paper.

This 9x12" artwork is matted to fit a 16x20" frame. Price is $130 matted. Framing, taxes and shipping are extra.
