Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency, Sitka Center

Last October, I was honored to work with master printer Julia D'Amario for two weeks in a Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency at Sitka Center. Under Julia's skilled tutelage, I adapted traditional etching tools and processes to engage both hands and all fingers at once in marking the copper plate. In the photo above, I am burnishing the plate with both hands, steel thimbles on all ten digits, to create a spatial rendering of the rhythms of Steve Reich's Clapping Music, 1972. The resulting etching, Field, is one of several prints we produced that will be included in my solo exhibition In and Out of Rhythm at the Governor's Office February 14 - April 16, 2014.
