It’s been a great few months. I’m tired, but April, May, and June have shown me the value of treating art like a job. The show at Alaska House in Fairbanks has been met with great enthusiasm and excitement from both locals and travelers. Even the beautiful but definitely strange work found new homes.
On to the photos.
These are linocuts that were collaged on panel, then layered with acrylic media and paint. I had every intention of doing editioned woodcuts for July but got way too involved in these pieces. Perhaps these images would translate well into reduction woodcut prints. I’m thinking about the passage of time in these pieces and the woodcut process has that in spades. They are 18″x24″, quite a lot larger than any other print collage pieces I’ve done in the past.
Also, I promised better photos of the Palmer project. These were taken by Glenn Aronwits, who patiently photographed through the whole installation and put up with some very reluctant human subjects. Here’s a tour.
That’s it for now. The summer is moving quickly and has been filled with heat and smoke, but also some beautiful sunny days, fresh tomatoes, and hopefully some adventures.
