From Siberia with Love

Some views of the Rechnoy Vokzal subway station in Novorsibirsk, Russia.
This station has beautiful stained glass panels with the names of Siberian cities engraved at the top.
This one is dedicated to Novorsibirsk, the largest city East of the Ural mountains
Subway platform at Novosibirsk Metro, Russia.  The subway stations are so clean they remind me of the ones in Washington DC.  (No one was eating or drinking.)
This panel is dedicated to Mangazeya,
The sunlight at the top of this image is a glimpse of the metro line that goes over the Ob river.
This stained glass window is dedicated to Tobol'sk.
Surgut - It was explained to me that the name Surgut is Khanty

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.

52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 9

Vintage Velvet, Embroidery & Silkscreens This week's book See Us is about bringing to light that which has been in the dark.
See Us,  is also the title of the main poem in the book.  I silkscreened the poem on the textile page.  When the text was dry, I hand embroidered glass beads to the page.
To further the motif of "see us" I printed many of the images with a pale ink on the dark velvet.  This created haunting, ghost-like imagery. The finished book: The poetic interweaving of rare African textiles, modern fibers, original imagery, and poetry.
