Image: 14×52 inches. Sheet: 20×60 inches. Woodblock print on mixed media collage.
The Mashomack Preserve was bought by the Nature Conservancy to preserve an important habitat on Shelter Island, located between the eastern forks of Long Island. The woodblock is from a branching image of maple leaves taken at the Preserve and rearranged into four pieces. For this series, I playfully “editioned” each panel on a variety of washi papers using monoprint, paper lithography, pastel rubbings, silk aquatint, and woodgrain printing and then selected the panels to be mounted together for each work in the series. Collaborating Printer: Kathy Caraccio at K. Carraccio Printmaking Studio, New York.
