I developed this technique of dipping paper into a vat of indigo dye and moving it in ways to make the image. The papers are dipped multiple times over a number of days to add complexity and to take advantage of the fact that the indigo vat is constantly changing. The paper reflects the fact that it has been wet. People surprise me with the wonderful things they see in the pieces. They tell me of very specific places they see in my work, usually places that they have wonderful memories of. Because the edges are interesting, I recommend suspending the image inside a frame of matting so that the edges show.
