"East Bank View" - Portland, Oregon original art, 8"x8" hand-pulled, photographic etching print mounted on wood panel - Ready to Hang Art!
An adapted view of the Portland, Oregon skyline from the East side of Portland on the Willamette River. Highlighting the Steel Bridge and the Freemont Bridge in a unique position.
To make my photographic montage etchings, I start by taking photos of buildings and signs I want to use, then I compose my scenes on the computer creating a photomontage, fitting the most culturally significant objects together like a puzzle into a cohesive scene.
To make the etching plates, I use a polymer photogravure technique to translate the photographic elements into printed form and then combine several plates into a single scene. I ink the plates with Akua water-based ink and print them on Rives BFK cotton-based paper. Each square in the artwork is a different plate. It all comes together when I run the final through on an etching press – pictured above.
