(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

EDEN’S END, drawing on the Biblical imagery of the Book of Genesis, while appearing to be hammered metal, in fact, consists of four pieces of hand built and raku fired stoneware secured to a piece of split and hand sanded cherry, by wooden dowels and epoxy sculpt. The legs are of various lengths to accommodate the unevenness of the base. 7 ½”H x 19”W x 7”D.

AN AMERICAN FACE #2

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

AN AMERICAN FACE #2, a hand inked and hand pulled collographic monoprint, continues the experiment of using hand woven paper as printing surface that I started with DANCE OF THE PENGUINS: SOLO # 11. It is part of a series of  images designed specifically for hand woven paper, attempting to combine the angles and features of the human face with the textural aspects of the woven paper and a layered application of ink. Matted and framed to 18” x 14”.

Left Index

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

LEFT INDEX, a hand inked and hand pulled collographic monoprint, unlike the FOCAL POINT, CONTOURS OF FLIGHT, and LINEAR THOUGHT Series, uses irregular and non-geometric design elements and solid color blocks to create a somewhat more representational and less abstract image. LEFT INDEX is the first in a series of probably ten prints. Matted and framed to 18” x 14″.
