Working from my photographs of sculptures in Photoshop, using layers much as I ever did in screen printing but more precisely.  It’s a must to do the printing myself, because it’s my job to make with all the skill I can. I use the same uncoated French paper in making these photo prints that I used in silkscreen printing, the image comes out just slightly softer, fleshier, analog, than the digital image. I moved to rural Georgia from California in 2012.  I doubt I’d have begun this contemplative work if I had remained in busy California; I see no end to it. After photographing live models and hand pulling photosilkscreen prints for 45 years I now photograph and “bring to life” female portrait statues. These women’s stories are legion, many heartbreaking, some are sweet.  They were allowed to show emotions forbidden to men, so are a record of how life felt then: childbirth often fatal, disease swept many away, famines and wars ever possible. I find who they were, who sculpted them, why. Several views may combine for a 2D image, even as we mentally combine views of sculpture to comprehend them. These forgotten women:  I am their medium, this is my calling. It feels as though some feminine power chose me and it’s burning me up. To remember them is to honor them; I depict them to celebrate them. I hope you can’t stop looking at them.  They deserve remembrance.  I work from my raw images in Photoshop on an iMac, using layers much as I ever did in screenprinting but more precisely.  It’s a must to do the printing myself, it’s my job to make with all my skill.     https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/551 Forms in Clay https://www.danvillemuseum.org/events/details/ID/551 Monday, 03 June 2019 18:00:00 EST Swanson Studios at the Danville Museum of Fine Art & History965 Main Street Danville, VA Time:Mondays 6:00pm - 9:00pm Cost:$95.00 for members of the museum and $105 for non museum members.
