MOVING GALLERY OBSCURA STUDIO
Facing the common dilemma among artists who are working in areas that are undergoing urban gentrification, effective March 1, 2016, I have moved my studio from NW Glisan in Northwest Portland, OR to a new space:
After March 1, the new address will be:
Gallery Obscura Studio
602 SE 16th Ave

PLATINUM WOOD PRINTS
After extensive and lengthy experimentation with various methods of printing in platinum/Palladium on wood surfaces, I finally, in 2014 hit upon a method that for me produces Pt/Pd prints on wood from digital negatives with a consistency comparable to that I achieved on paper. Thus, for the past two years, the vast majority of my work with platinum printing has been confined to what I call Platinum Wood Prints.
These prints will be primarily featured on this site for the foreseeable future. Links to descriptions of background and technical methods are available through the Methods Section.
Meanwhile, I retain some of my favorite paper prints in the Archives Section on this site and I have others in inventory at my studio, but, with some exceptions, am now confining my work to printing on wood.
