Since I walked into New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art many years ago, I have been fascinated by the intense beauty of the astonishing Greek Aphrodite. Her arms are broken, her nose damaged & yet she remains one of the most beautiful objects created by man. I took multiple photos on that visit, many of which appear in my paintings, etchings and other art.
These available works are paintings on heavy (300 lb) archival Arches or Rives paper. Images are 16x20-inches in size on either 19x25 or 22x30-inch (56 x 76 cm) stock.
All are assemblages of paint & ink, sometimes combining etchings, watercolor, drawings, photos & pencil using Chine-collé. Several use a French stencil technique called pochoir. The images often include, in the process of making them, application of paint or ink into the image using multiple passes through a large Dutch PolyMetaal etching press.
