(1st Place – Printmaking)
School: Lathrop High School
This is a reduction print. I printed each color, and then carved more of my print block, and then printed the next color, etc. The image can no longer be re-created, even though it’s a print, because the original image is forever altered. Thus the print becomes an original. I spent months creating this image. The final touch was to add gold leaf in areas to make reference to Japanese art traditions.
