Untitled (Sea Turtles), 2007

Screenprint. 10 x 10 inches, edition of 5.

My very first screenprint!

I took a summer course at Pratt, taught by the lovely and talented Kristen Ramirez. I’d recently had a dream about sea turtles flying over the Seattle cityscape, and when I put the memory of it to paper, the image became much more ominous: the turtles weren’t in the air… the city was underwater. For a first attempt, this was pretty ambitious. Including a final translucent layer for sheen, there are seven colors in all!
