From Fire, Gold
This original, hand-pulled print is about and for the people of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada whom had to flee their town with just a moment's notice as a wildfire surged their way. You can see at the top of the print, it looks like a few barren trees on a scorched ground and as you go down you see more of it, but there is also some green, signifying not all is lost. From the red flames below gold iridescent bars emerge and stand, symbolizing something better, stronger and untarnishable that will come out of the destruction. The ink is applied heavier in some areas and as a result this print has a nice textured, tactile appearance.
It is in the spirit of camaraderie that I will donate 50% of the profit from this print to the Canadian Red Cross to help all those in Fort McMurray who have lost so much.
This is a hand pulled, one generation printed original monoprint. The process is one in which paint/ink is put down on a plate (plexiglass, etc.), the image is constructed on that plate, paper is put down on top of it, pressure is applied to the back of the paper and then the paper is pulled off the plate. The image is then transferred onto the paper. This results in ONE print only. Once this print is gone, it's gone. Done in lightfast and archival-quality top of the line professional Golden and Winsor Newton artist paints.
Size: 12" x 16" acrylic monoprint on heavy weight
