LYING AWAKE. Work from 2000 to 2017. With Excerpts from the Artist's Notebooks. Lithium Press.
The book covers the spectrum from traditional lithography to more radical interpretations of the medium: sculptural facsimiles of the stone, cast in wax, and hybrid works on Formica with the scarring levigator used as an engraving tool. Included in full are the following cycles: Nightwork, Spiracle, Pitch, Lying Awake, Soot and Soul.
Following the format of Open Studio, and Fulgurite, I have included a generous selection of excerpts from the notebooks. They capture the moments of steep and deep that the artist experiences behind the closed doors of the studio.
LYING AWAKE received a special recommendation from the Achenbach Graphic Arts Council at the Legion of Honor (Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.)
