This hand pulled inspirational Yin Yang print is a mixed media relief etching, using various techniques, including etching, aquatint, rubber and woodblock stamps, and printed typography. Having always been interested in the mystery and beauty of Chinese calligraphy and characters, this piece consists of various Chinese symbols, with their translations printed below the image. Since these prints are all executed by hand, expect slight fluctuations from print to print. Prints are sold at random. Specific number requests cannot be honored. This print is subject to incremental price increases as the edition sells out.

Technique: First, an etching was made on a zinc plate, then an aquatint was applied. Next, the plate was inked as a relief etching, and printed on black paper. The Chinese symbols were then hand-stamped using hand cut woodblock and rubber stamps. The paper was then archivally adhered to beautiful, heavy 100% cotton rag paper as a substrate, which had been run through an Epson pigment-based giclee printer to print the words.
