The plates

Posted on: May 30th, 2010 by jmbroekman

Where did the month of May go?

I am embarrased that it’s been almost a month since I last wrote. The month of May does bring all kinds of obligatory activites: namely getting the garden started. And the weather has been positively summer like – about three weeks early here in Maine.

Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been some artistic activity. Since the Peregrine Press Springs sale – which proved quite successful. Many thanks to all of you who checked out my sale page and lent your support – I’ve been working on preparing for some juried show applications, as well as the Peregrine Press Flat file project (more on that later).

I am still compelled by the prints I’ve been working on the last few months; at left is a photo of some of the used and abused plates. Making the plates is a lot like making a collage; the plates were, in fact, completely inspired by the “Picking Up the Pieces” series of collages I’ve been working on since December. Coming full circle, I recently made a small series of 10 collages using some of the proof prints. From collage to print and back again. Here are just a few for your perusal. Enjoy!
