Darren Waterston and Tyrus Miller, The Flowering (The Fourfold Sense), thirteen digital prints on Hahnemuhle 310, thirteen letterpress broadsides, 18”x13,” Edition of 40, 2007. Handmade cloth covered clamshell portfolio by John DeMerritt.
Darren Waterston’s work always takes me by surprise in the most satisfying way. This portfolio contained the most beautiful work I saw yesterday at the L.A. Art Book Fair. Waterston added hand painted elements to most of the prints upon completion.
Great as it is, the print shown above doesn’t begin to do the rest of the portfolio justice so check out the rest of the prints in The Flowering portfolio here at the Gallery 16’s website. Personal favorites from the suite are Weeper, Ghost, Leper’s Conversion, Receiving Blue, and Eye As Moon.
Starting this Friday, here’s the first of two workshops I’ll be teaching at the Valley Print Studio over the next two months.
