“If you need light to come into your life, you should stand where it is shining.”
Golden Glade was created at a uncertain time in my life. I was emerging from a dark place (reference) and wanted to create a reminder that no matter how dark it is or how lost you may feel, there’s always a place you can find the light. Each warm color in this piece is overlaid in translucent metallic gold, bathing the viewer in golden light. Be still, receive it and allow it to light your way home.
Each of the color separations in this piece, were designed by the artist and used to burn printing stencils using the photographic silkscreen process. Each stencil was used twice in two separate applications of color. Once to print a solid, base color and again to apply variations of tone and texture through a brush-applied monoprint technique known as Pochoir. This technique is rarely used in screen printing and results in the subtle variations, making each printed edition truly unique from one print to the next.
5 Editions were hand-pulled by the artist.
