About the Paper. I print on Aurora Art Natural 250 paper. Aurora is made from cotton linters. These linters are considered "recovered fibers" by the EPA, so this paper is a sustainable choice in that regard. The paper has a natural, warm white tone and semi-smooth surface, so has enough tooth to hold plenty of ink while producing a sharp image.
About the Inks. I use pigment inks, which resist fading. If you frame your print using UV acylic or glass and hang it away from bright light, the chances of it fading before fifty years have elapsed is very low. Your print will stay vibrant throughout your lifetime and beyond.
About the Art. I created this art piece, titled Magma Chamber, while completing an online course covering the geology of the U.S. National Parks. So many of our parks, especially those out west, are volcanic in nature. As I worked my way through 36 lectures, I was exposed to almost endless craters, calderas, and, most importantly, animations of magma chambers forming deep in the earth. I took the course as an escape from brutally hot and humid weather that made my day job at a greenhouse almost (okay, beyond almost) unbearable. When I decided to create a new mandala, I was naturally drawn to hot colors and chose a photo of a bright orange daylily as the kernal of my new piece. Magma chambers appeared immediately in this piece, dozens of them almost exactly as portrayed in the course I was taking. In the finished piece, they're feeding a pool of liquid fire at center.
This mandala is a commemoration of my own personal summer of '22, but with climate change in full upswing everywhere, there's a more universal statement here. That being said, I'm adding it to my environmental catacylsm series. Beyond the ecological connection, this piece carries the powerful energy of self-actualization and is a good pick when trying to tap more deeply into your creative potential. You can read more about this artwork in the essay I posted to introduce it.
This design is also availabe as a square fine art card.
