Landscapes aren’t just mountains, streams and seashores. This is the view down Second Avenue from the John Seigenthaler pedestrian Bridge in Nashville. The day I took this photo, Shiloh and I were out for a walk on an unusually warm day in March. I loved all the reflections in the glass, contrasting shapes, colors and textures of the architecture as they descend into the horizon and did my best to capture them in this piece. Welcome to New Nashville, y’all.
The Inkscapes are a series of monotype prints, depicting scenes and etherial landscapes as viewed through a cellular matrix or frames. Monotypes are basically single prints made by applying and removing ink on glass and then pressing the paper onto the image. Pressing can be done with a roller (etching) press or by hand. Multiple applications of ink or impressions may be made to achieve multiple colors, tonal or textural qualities, but you only get one. One shot. One print. One single image. Sort of like life, right?
