Several projects have been going at one time and some of them were finished this past week. The subject of today’s post is a piece that started when I made bark paper (featured in the previous post) using the Amate process. The finished piece is composed of 3 layers: the bottom is a piece of black hardware cloth with a 1/4″ grid, above that is a piece of copper mesh that has been digitally printed, above that is a piece of the bark paper I printed with the same image on the copper mesh.
The photograph was taken in the Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park this June. Photoshop was used to manipulate and combine the original photograph with another image. This piece is around 37″ in height and 17″ in width. The layers have been assembled using waxed linen tied through the three surfaces. The pictures show a few details and the actual piece.
