Conscious Duality

Dorothy Graden's avatar Dorothy Graden

This painting began with the artist hand pulling and pigmenting cotton rag paper in the paper studio. When the paper is pressed and dried, ink, watercolor and pastels are applied to complete the painting. Dorothy has hiked hundreds of miles in the American West photographing ancient carvings and mystical paintings on boulders and canyon walls. Inspiration for this work is a combination of prehistoric North American petroglyph imagery as well as the Japanese woodblock print process.
