Works on Paper
For years I only made large paintings on wood. With the help of a my friend and printmaker Sirima Sataman, I was able to translate my paintings into works on paper.
The backgrounds are monotype prints created by pressing ink on paper to make a colorful, textured backgrounds. Then I slowly build up the image using 4 different screens for the background shape, the line art, the robes, and then the halos of the Buddhas. Because they are handmade, each one is original and unique.
