The first print to come out of new explorations of printing on rice paper and sumi painting, this piece photographically blends layers of sumi and photography into an archival pigment print. Every spring I create a new piece in honor of the plum tree outside my window. The tree is getting on in years and its bark is beautifully textured with pale green lichens. In March it begins to pulse with a pink haze, even before the blossoms come. It is as though the tree changes the color of the air just by thinking about spring. In a few weeks sprays of flowers appear and in the wind they rain petals into the street. The scent filters down through the garden and the branches fill with small gray birds.
I spent many years painting classic sumi style paintings of plum trees. This is an homage to that tradition, drawing elements of old and new and brought into the digital age.
The finished piece is meticulously proofed and printed on German Etching, using archival pigment inks rated to last for 100 years or more. The prints come with a certificate of authenticity verifying the edition number and the edition size.
These prints are traditionally numbered and signed in light pencil with the number on the left and the signature on the right, just below the image. They are intended to be matted with an approximately 1/2 inch space all around to reveal the signature, but can be cropped to the edge of the image if desired. Prints are sold unframed. Due to the difference in monitor settings on various devices I cannot guarantee that the color match of what you receive will be exact compared to what the listing shows.
