I live in the lakes region of New Hampshire. These beautiful lakes are a large part of the landscape and are a huge part of our culture. However we really only see the surface or what is reflected back to us from the surface.
Exploring the unseen side of the lakes takes them out of everyday context. By focusing on their overall shape and depth I get a sense of the lake as a whole. Each one is unique, from the fractal complexity of the shoreline, islands and rivers to the incremental progression of the depths. They are more portrait than landscape.
Each of these prints are hand pulled with up to 18 layers. Printed with transparent inks on Japanese paper. They are based on topographical depth maps.
