From the artist: “'Chrysanthemum’ began as a drawing on the iPad. As a purely digital work, the lines mimic the textures and energetic lines of a sketch, but it only exists as a file on the tablet, a ghost in the machine. However, the spirit of the image has been meticulously carved into blocks of wood and imbued into the fibers of handcrafted paper. Continuing in the series of muses that are consecrated in the woodcut medium, the Chrysanthemum muse is caught in a tornado of fire—the external trappings burn away, revealing the essence within. The petals pulsate like beating hearts, marking a tempo for this fiery process of destruction and rebirth.”
