Twilights Edge

Black Winter is a  giant  woodcut, which I made at the Nelimarkka Museo in Alajärvi, Finland, while on a Fulbright grant in 2007. 
 A Finnish girl stated that each winter, less and less snow falls in her country. They call this a “black winter” because without snow the landscape is very dark and gloomy. Another installation, Night Woods utilizes strips of sheer cloth printed using collagraphs made from plants near the lake or järvi. This work conveys the sense of a moonlit birch forest. I also editioned a collagraph called Summer's End using the same plate.
