Artist's description:

Created as a part of a series inspired by Japanese woodblock artist Hiroshige. The work shares structure with a Hiroshige piece with the same title. It diverges in content and materiality. The 'gorge' in this case becomes a fog covered union between the gridded white city of San Francisco and the gateway to the land of Giant Sequoias on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge.
I share an affinity for woodblock artists as we essentially both draw with knives. Here, the fog is cut from handmade Japanese paper, the city and trees from tape. The piece is finished with graphite outlines.

The delicate balance between city and nature resonated with me while living in New York City. I now live on this very precipice and regularly hear the fog horns at the mouth of the Golden Gate.

Materials used:

mylar, tape, vinyl, graphite
