DRIFT WOOD SERIES




Image size: 24 1/2" x 33 3/4"   c. 1970s
Media:  Found wood -  3 blocks combined
Paper:  Rice paper
Edition:   a monoprint, executed in different colour combinations


Living in a home, with a tiny beach as part of the backyard (overlooking the Great South Bay),
 Long Island,  found wet wood (the central black parts above) would often dry out into groovy textures for printing.   Fortunately, I had a long press bed, so that I could add length to the 'view' I had in mind by using another groovy pine block to suggest the bay.

  1. Now that is absolutely beautiful. I love the way you've infused the picture with moonlight while not making the moon itself picture-postcard obvious. I think this is my absolute favourite of all your works so far. That's because I do like a pictorial element. Having been to your beach helps as well!
