Lightness and Grace

The “Dance” series was inspired by the Ballet Room at the Watson Art Centre and my desire to play with printmaking by carving into styrofoam. I create a design with a specific printing technique in mind, prepare the print plate by either drawing or cutting into them, hand colour the paper, manually ink the designed plate, and press this onto the paper, then layer that with additional color. I check and sign each individual original print in an edition to ensure that it is as I intended it to be.

"Lightness and Grace is a Mixed media varied-edition block print on acid-free paper in 2 sizes. The 9.25 x 12.5" artwork is matted to fit a 11"x140" frame, and the 10x13" artwork is matted to fit a 16x20" frame.

Price: $120 matted. Framing, taxes and shipping are extra.
