NEW WORK


Focused on the discovery of 
CAUSE + EFFECT 
through the printmaking techniques of drypoint etching,
embossing, polymer, relief, and the use of aniline and natural dyes.



SOUL AWARENESS

I STAND, UPRIGHT

 HELD WITHIN MY SOUL

discovering the cause + effect

Harvested from my garden, nicotiana solanaceae plants are passed through the etching press. The natural dyes and oils from the plants leave an image on the BFK Rives paper.

The paper is then dyed with kakishibu, the fermented juice of unripe persimmons fruit. 
   Aniline dyes are poured or painted onto the paper.
The excess dyes are washed off and the paper is ready to print.
 Finished print | SOUL AWARENESS

HOME
is within me
as
MIND


HOME is the expression | representation | embodiment of TRUTH.

This TRUTH is the immediate object of understanding.

Unchangeable and without distortion, beyond time, space, person.

LIVE as the functioning presence of TRUTH.


LOVE and know TRUTH, for its own sake.


Live LIFE as your self-experience; underived and satisfied.
 
  
ponder this: LOVE'S thoughts about LOVE.
