Scara Conversazione, Inkjet and Woodcut
17.5 x 21.5

I am interested in the conversation between intangible ideals of nature and tangible actuality, and how science and technology now condition this cultural dialogue. In this print, these voices occur in imagery and also technically by combining traditional forms (made of ink) with digital forms (made of pixels). I made an intaglio photoetching of Leonardo’s drawing and then digitized it, with an xray of arthritic hands. Printed over all is a delicate woodgrain in translucent copper ink, which re-asserts a layer of tactility.
