I have been experimenting with the art of collagraphy, or prints made with hand-made textured plates, for many years. The thing that draws me to this type of printmaking process is the simple construction of the plate. I use foam core board as my base and attach pieces of nature, recycled odds and ends, and small metal objects to my plate with acrylic matte medium.
Here we are stepping into the spring season and the gradual awakening of nature. We too are coming alive with hopeful thoughts of reemergence --connecting once again with the people and places we love. The pandemic has been a great teacher over the past year and asked us to pay attention to what truly matters most and keeps us grounded. Art certainly found its way to the top of my list.
Our KB Studio community has been working together collaboratively over the past few months to create Suddenly Revealed, a newly published book project inspired by the words of visionary artist and naturalist Charles Burchfield
This book is the result of one of our Tuesday Night Art Gatherings where we meet each week on Zoom to review student artwork and get involved in a variety of art challenges. For this particular challenge, participants were given a series of words or phrase to use as inspiration for a new work of art. To keep things interesting, the name of the author who wrote the words and the title of the written piece was not revealed, and no one knew the words that the others had received.
