This project is a departure from previous work as a botanical artist. Although each plant has its own cyclical story of death and resurrection, “Inanna’s Descent” is a larger, archetypal story that presents the challenge of working more abstractly than traditional botanical art requires. I love the stark boundaries of working only in black and white and the puzzle of figuring out what is to be carved white and what is to be inked black. I also love working with beautiful Japanese tools, wood blocks, and papers. Although I’m still very much a novice at carving, I enjoy working with knives, although it’s not as relaxing as working pencils – in a woodcut, each line an adventure that can not be erased! I carved this first block three different times. Read more here.
Note from Team Waller:
In late March 2016, we opened a new space on Main Street in the Middle of Main building. It is called Team Waller’s “Open House: Meet in the Middle” and will serve as a resource to our community. We will offer a wealth of real estate and community information, as well as cutting edge technology to learn more about listings, the buying process, and our local community attractions and resources. This space isn’t just for Team Waller; it is for the entire community. We will open our doors to community groups to educate the public about the causes that are close to their hearts and also offer our space as a meeting venue to anyone in need of a local location. Helping our community grow and serve as a resource to our neighbors is “What Matters” to us.
