This Singer Editions fine art print is of an original watercolor painting, Bauhaus, inspired by the classic geometrical problem of squaring the circle. The idiom “squaring the circle” also served as a good personal metaphor, since I was grappling with what I thought were insurmountable challenges. It stands as a metaphor for me; a reminder that it’s not always possible to find the rational in life. I will never exactly square a circle, no matter how much I’d like to make it fit. After I created this piece the tides shifted, and that tale has now been told out, but I do remember what a delight this was to paint. When I first started painting this series, I remembered it was a scarf pattern of my mother’s from the seventies. Scarf is gone, but the pattern remained. 2015

Singer Editions is a fine art digital printmaking atelier specializing in the production of limited edition prints. Artist and printmaker work collaboratively, following a very traditional printmaking model during which the artist is involved at every stage of the process. The digital nature provides an unprecedented amount of control, insuring that every print accurately and faithful represents the artists’ vision. Each print is produced one-at-a-time by hand, and goes through a careful curating process before leaving the studio. In addition to the pride and craftsmanship that goes into the production of these prints, at every step of the process the highest quality, most permanent and most archival materials are utilized. The use of these quality materials insures that the prints will last a lifetime with no degradation to color or substrate. These prints were produced digitally using Epson printmaking technology. The paper is Museo manufactured by Crane; it combines a natural paper base with a surface specifically prepared to receive ink. I keep my editions small.
