Shizen Ni


Artist Statement:
Eco printing requires a lengthy aqueous process of dipping, soaking, boiling and rinsing. This connects me to the history of paper and paper making which also requires water in its production. Paper and water go hand in hand. These eco-prints have been made using cotton rag paper chosen for its strength to withstand the intensive heated aqueous printing process. Japan has a long tradition of quality paper making. The eco-prints presented here in a banner like form reflect my interest in the Japanese aesthetic of Zen, Wabi Sabi and Kami, the spirits that inhabit nature.
