Ghosts of Shadows Passing

Memories fuse with each other
 Images blend to form a soft remembrance,
of places seen, 
feelings felt and unfelt.
Only, now they return as soft lullabies.

Notations from Gridville, continued

Every day I read about politicians, presidents, world leaders who jockey for position to be the greatest, eager to amass wealth and power regardless of the consequences, or the cost.

Are their ears and hearts plugged up and cold?

Notations from Gridville via MAX

Another group of generative digital images.  Note: these images will be turned into hand printed images and limited edition prints. 

Next Phase- working on a standalone image loop that can be customized to load a range of images, colors, variations. Imagine having images slowly evolving, changing and morphing.

images that stimulates memories

For years I have seen things, had thoughts and remembered events.
Sometimes they seem to come in no apparent order and follow no linear timeline.

I don't know if it's always been that way, but after years of making images; mostly photographs, drawings, and prints. I have found a way to merge the images together. They feel oddly familiar like, I've seen them before, experienced in the moment. 

Are these dreams made manifest or composites of my experiences? 

Maybe a bit of both.

About the process

The images are run through MAX, then through a capture button. the images are then processed through Photo shop, separated into CMYK black and white positives, and then printed by hand using a process that could be compared to hand lithography. The prints are then mounted onto canvas, hand colored then sealed with matte medium.

First Lithograph in the new shop

Hand printed on handmade abaca paper. 8.75" X 11.5"

This image was printed from a lithographic stone that was created around 1900.
The image was engraved on stone and then printed using traditional lithographic techniques.

There will be an edition of 20, hand printed printed and then sold for $20.00 each 
This is a fundraiser for The Center For Collaborative Research.

Lithography shop at the Center for Collaborative Research and ProppJonesStudio

The NEW/OLD Litho Press getting ready to for its new life.
It feels great to be back in a shop. I remember how alive I felt when I was working at the press. I had a momentary taste while getting the shop ready.  Stay tuned.
