Still Life, 2008. Screen & relief, ed. 2/3, 22 x 22".

Introducing Diane Logan Butler a master printer who recently took time off from helping other artists to create perfect prints... and has given us the gift of her own. Thank you!

Wine and Roses, 2007. Screen & relief, ed 3/7, 30 x 22"

These works are from her "Over Easy" series, recently exhibited Villa Julie College in Maryland, near the artist's home town. In her words, these prints explore "the rhythms and the yin and yang of life -- acts of everyday life, love, relationships, music and journeys."

Little Man, 2006. Screen, relief and string, ed 1/1, 30 x 22"
I am only beginning to scratch the surface of what there is to understand about printmaking... but know that each of these involve layers and layers of both screen and relief processes, and often times additional collage and even embroidery (look closely at the orange circle above). Not to mention their layering of imagery, scale, pattern and color with the sensibility of a playful architect/gardener!

Breath, 2007. Screen and relief, ed. 3/4, 26 x 19".

And the careful drops of text send out ripples of possible interpretations. At $450 - $600, these beauties are a steal. Enjoy.

Yes, 2007. Screen and relief, ed 3/7, 30 x 22"

Angle, 2007. Screen and relief, ed 1/2, 17 x 15"
