Colorscapes

These prints employ traditional softground etching to capture impressions of fabric and other textile materials on a copper plate. In the final image, layers of color are established by printing on the same area, with the same plate. Variation is established with different ink colors and areas of absent printed information, blocked off with fabric during the printing process. Like different lines of distance in a landscape, the colors create a sense of depth and dimension. As fields of color build up on the paper, the prints transform into colorscapes--panoramas of strange yet vaguely familiar landscapes.
