|Make a Wish|
Collograph, gesso, oil, graphite, rubber stamp
30" x 22"
Make a Wish is from a series I did when my now teenage sons, were very young, using recycled children's clothing as a vehicle to tell the stories of childhood/motherhood, time passing, and memory.
Often in this work, numbers and letters float through space.
This is a collograph print. I coated the clothing with an acrylic gel medium that when dried creates a hard impermeable surface that I rolled up with ink and embossed onto a sheet of paper using a table top etching press.
Ok, I wouldn't mind a little more compliance. Make a Wish.
