1982. Print. Intaglio and relief, vermillion, black, gray, blue, and yellow on 21 1/2 X 15 in. papers, 29 X 20 1/2 in. Japanese paper and Stonehenge. No. 85, variable edition 141. Signed lower right.
Artist's Comment: This print is from a series of 141 trial proofs and artist's proofs in "cycles" of approximately 15 each of different palettes. They are proofs using processes of cyanotype, woodcut, and intaglio techniques. The images are: (1) A map of the Colorado River, at the Crossing of the Fathers; (2) the leaf-like shape I call locus (I drew these as data for my use in a computer program), and (3) the Great Wave after the famous print by Hokusai. I made a collector’s video of making the last print in the series.
