Handmade

Materials

abaca, cotton, linen, daylily, pigment, flax pulp paint

The handmade paper artwork is "painted" completely with pigmented cotton pulp on top of a base sheet made from abaca, cotton, and kozo. The entire process, from forming the base sheet to painting my image, is done at the same time while all the fibers are wet.

Here's the process details: The fiber used in the creation of this sheet is a combination of abaca (the inner bark of a banana plant), cotton rag, and kozo (Japanese mulberry). I beat the fibers in a Hollander beater to form a pulp. Once the pulp is formed into a sheet, I place a series of mylar stencils on top of the still wet sheet. I spray finely beaten cotton pulp, pigmented various shades, onto the base sheet. After the sheet is pressed and dried, the result is this sheet of unique paper, where the image itself is part of the paper fiber. Even though I use the same stenciled images multiple times, each sheet I create is unique, based on variations of sheet formation and pulp painting.

The H. Howard Hyde House is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's American System-Built Homes, developed between 1912-1916. Wright envisioned entire subdivisions of these moderate income homes, although only 25 were built, in part due to America's entry into WWI and the national need for building materials. The 15 surviving homes are located in 4 Midwest states. The H. Howard Hyde House, located in the Beverly neighborhood, was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1994.

This paper is pH neutral and archival. Although the pigmented color is more light-safe and permanent than using dyes, it is best to keep the artwork away from direct sunlight. If you decide to frame this piece, consider floating the sheets on top of the mat, exposing the unique deckle edge. This piece comes with a one-sheet description of the artwork and is signed by the artist.

Created in Bridgeport (Chicago, Illinois), August 2018.
