Nesting in the Time of Covid-19

Collagraph made of the paper of a wasp nest and glue .Printed in a variable edition

During the pandemic, a friend sent me the remains of a wasp nest which was hanging from the eaves of his home. During the lockdown, this seemed like an appropriate metaphor for my state of mind and my physical state of isolation.

Mixed media monotype mounted on board

This monotype is from the “characters” series .  It was conceived as a shrine to the ancestors, and includes fish bones to suggest the fact that we all originally came from the sea.  The central section is cut into the board and has an overlay of translucent rice paper.

These are invented characters based on ancient Chinese pictographs.  The central quadrant has a translucent overlay to suggest a greater distance in time from these figures.

This monotype is from the “Stones” series. Click on this image to see more monotypes from this series. They were done using a torn paper reduction technique which I developed. This image reminds me of ice or wood floating in water.
