“Small Springs (backsplash)”

Barbara Takenaga’s describes her new lithograph “Small Springs (backsplash)”.

I like the sense of that in-between time of blue light in this print – between daylight and night in a stylized landscape of water and island. Iridescent, faintly pink geysers can be read alternately as small springs, white flames, flowering plants or the backsplash of something falling into riples of water.

“Small Springs (backsplash)” has been printed in an edition of 25, plus proofs, on white Rives BFK 24 x 19½”. Printed in thirteen colors from six plates plus hand coloring and pearlescent powder.
