“Blue Sanctuary” 1990

Intaglio on handmade paper, 22” x 30”. Artist’s collection.

In 1989 & 1990 Helen Frederick kindly offered me a kind of residency at Pyramid Atlantic Center for Paper, Print and the Book.  Every Thursday night my Assistant Takako Nagai & I would go to Tacoma Park to work on prints.  I did this intaglio called “Sanctuary” and Helen offered to guide me through making a pulp paper matrix for the print.  She made this beautiful indigo pulp paper which I pulp painted and collaged with strips of newspaper.  It was then overprinted with a black inked zinc intaglio plate.  Only five were editioned.
