Fragments from an Unnkowable Landscape
These painted prints are part of an ongoing collaboration with artist Justin James King begun in 2020.
They use handmade, hand-collected ochre paint over images of objects from geologically siginficant places.
I collected tiny amounts of these ochres from areas believed to have formed during the Jurassic period, no less than 140 million years ago. Ochre, in general, is one of the oldest known sources of color used by our human ancestors; it has been found in archaeological sites dating back more than 300,000 years1. More information about ochre as paint can be found via the practice of my teacher Heidi Gustafson here.
The prints can be purchased at Deep Time Press.
