For Shakespeare's 400th birthday

Memory #18, 2016, archival pigment print


Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
   So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
   So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

William Shakespeare

More Leaves for a Book

Previously we featured digital proofs of three archival pigment prints from the forthcoming limited edition artist book, Leaves of Absence. Below are proofs of two more prints intended for the same book. I’m currently working on several others; they will be previewed on this blog in the near future. Meanwhile, there is a post about the project back in its infancy, including several works in early stages of development, on my Art Blog. To visit the post, click HERE. To preview the latest work in the series, visit the Art Blog HERE.
