Made some paper houses today, gonna dip them in encaustic tomorrow!
Paperback bound book of Rives lightweight + black walnut ink drawings I did with a quill…little bit odd I know, but I’m obsessed with the rhythms///the way the ink runs out and that variation of tone
"Nostalgia (from nostos - return home, and alga - longing) is a longing for a home that no longer exists or has never existed. Nostalgia is a sentiment of loss and displacement, but it is also a romance with one’s own fantasy. Nostalgic love can only survive in a long-distance relationship. A cinematic image of nostalgia is a double exposure, or superimposition of two images - of home and abroad, past and present, dream and everyday life."
Svetlana Boym, The Future of Nostalgia
Latest and greatest of the book I’m working on. Silkscreen, relief rolls of foreign coins, flat color monoprints as of now.
So this is what I have so far, silkscreen and monotype and prepped covers for a sketchbook/artists book/I’m not sure what kind of book its going to be. My registration isn’t fantastic, and this is a really early prototype/trial run, but I’m super excited that I’m using color again, and finding uses for old screens and plates and things.
My setup for a critique with Sigmund Abeles, who visited New Paltz today as a guest lecturer/artist
