Hop's View II BAT
The above image is the synthesis of the Artist's Proofs. The back island has no stencil but the rocks on the right do.
I was inspired when I made the drawings for this print and that inspiration has carried me through this project. Now, I'm surprised by what I've created. Where did it come from? Does it fit in with the rest of my work? I don't know. I love that aspect of making art when I don't know how it's going to turn out. If we make art from our "gut" without thinking, then we have created something radical as it is truly a reflection of ourselves. We are each radical in our own individuality.
Earlier this week I painted in Central Park. I was actually pretty anxious when I went out about some issues. To my surprise, when I viewed the painting the next day it looked joyful and playful! How did I do that? Where was my anxiety, my fear, my disappointment? This process of making art is truly mysterious! I'm loving it more and more as I swirl in the gyre going round and round.
Artist's Proof Hop's View II
Printed with three stencils: the island on the right, the trees and the mountain in the background.
These two images of Hop's View are artist's proofs. The top one is printed with a stencil and the bottom proof is printed without a stencil. The next proof will be printed as a combination of these two: the mountain in the background with no stencil and the island on the right and the trees with a stencil. There will be some new cuts in the linoleum block and the stencils so more of the woodblocks will peek through. The various possibilities are exciting. As soon as this new proof is available, I'll post it.
Artist's Proofs Hop's View II
Hop's View II printed without the stencils.
In preparation for the group show, July 5th-19th, at The Artemis Gallery in Northeast Harbor, ME, I have just about completed two new prints: Hop's View I and II. These prints are linoleum cuts printed over a wood block and stencils. This was my first print using stencils and linoleum blocks. I had the good fortune to collaborate with the Master Printer, Anthony Kirk, to make this edition of 25 prints.
A few summers ago, three of us with our painting gear in tow took a boat on the incoming tide into Frenchman Bay to the Porcupine Islands. We scrambled up The Hop, one of the islands in the Porcupine chain, and feverishly painted the view towards Mount Desert Island. After several hours, we quickly boarded the boat as the tide receded. It was incredible to be out painting on an uninhabited ocean island on a gorgeous summer day! I was able to capture an 12 x 16 oil painting of Cadillac Mountain in the distance. This year I took that image and transformed it into a pencil drawing and two new prints: Hop's View I and II.
Looking forward to its premiere at The Artemis Gallery in July! Hope you can drop by if you are in the area.
