Art in Embassies Program - Tbilisi, Georgia

One of my prints is now on display at the US embassy in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, through the U.S. Department of State - Art in Embassies program. I was invited by curator Claire D'Alba to display my piece on loan for a two to three year period. The works are installed in the representational spaces of the residence, where many of the ambassador's official functions are held. How exciting!

Details of new prints

Recently I've been feeling like a hamster in a wheel. I work and work and work at the studio, but everything seems to progress really slowly. I guess that's what it feels like being in a transition phase. Overall I think my work is growing, even if it's not happening at the rate I'd like to see, but I'm happy with the small steps that I have moved forward. I'm just waiting for the day when things will fall into place and be a little less laborious. In the meanwhile, here are some details of my new work. I've been re-working the studies from my previous post with layers upon layers, printing both on the back and the front of a translucent asian paper. I etched a whole series of plates with figures and one whole series of plates with forest sections, which I now overlap over and over again to create more rich and complex imagery. I still need to resolve the final pieces, but as soon as I do, I'll post them (I'm almost there). For now, here are some of the details.
