The scaffold series is created from mixed media explorations of construction sites and the abstract beauty of architectural structures. This image was inspired by the side of a building in construction next to Lake Union. It was covered by a huge tarp crisscrossed with ghosts of scaffolds hidden behind it, framed by the blue sky above it and the lake below. As I worked with this image, layer after layer of texture and line built up until it began to resemble a silk sari, with the threads of the real bleeding into the edges. When construction projects are draped in tarps it is like a huge theater project. The massive fabric becomes an archetype of the feminine, laying an atmosphere of mystery and sensuality over the hard grid.
This print is not a reproduction of a painting, but a contemporary print in which the print itself is the only form in which the artwork exists.
The finished piece is meticulously proofed and printed on German Etching, using archival pigment inks rated to last for 100 years or more. The prints come with a certificate of authenticity verifying the edition number and the edition size.
These prints are traditionally numbered and signed in light pencil with the number on the left and the signature on the right, just below the image. They are intended to be matted with an approximately 1/2 inch space all around to reveal the signature, but can be cropped to the edge of the image if desired. Prints are sold unframed.
