I have one print available left that is framed for $570. It is in a lovely minimal black frame and the print is float-mounted so you can see the etching paper edge. UV Glass is used in the frame so it is best not to ship it...it is available for pickup. Email me if you are interested.
NOTE: This piece is currently available at the PAM Rental Sales Gallery!
"Portlandmark" - Portland, Oregon original art, 14"x24" hand-pulled, photographic etching print of all the most popular landmarks of Portland, Oregon...thus called "Portlandmark"!
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.
Each print is numbered, hand signed, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity
