I’ve been thinking for awhile about using hand made paper in my print making and collage work, and while I have made paper before, I hadn’t for several years. So I just finished taking a 3 hour workshop entitled “Plant Fibers for Paper Making” from Winnie Radolan at the Abington Art Center, which proved to be a very good introductory and/or review workshop. The pieces shown above, using Ginko leaves and milkweed are a couple of my workshop pieces. I’m going to continue working with using fibers such as day lilies, daffodils, hosta, corn husks, et al, and incorporating those papers in my print making and collage work.
GPL #118 , a digital color photograph, is part of my new Series: “The Geometry of Power and Light“which focuses on the geometric patterns and shapes created by the poles, lines and equipment used for electrical transmission and how those patterns and shapes change as your perspective changes.
