Sold! Sugar Cane Twister CTPII

Sugar Cane Twister CTPII

It is the last day of PrintAustin 2021 and the event has been a good inspiration to still live and breath art during these Covid times. That and nature fuel my world. Many thanks to all involved to make these events work, and I truly appreciate Creekside Studio in Austin, Texas to make my photogravure dreams come true. I was honored to be featured during Creekside’s collaboration with Gallery Shoal Creek artist Koichi Yamamoto.

As an artist, the best thing you can do for yourself is becoming involved and preparing for an event. Forcing you to organize, create and learn new things that expand your skill set. This time around I was required to prepare a video presentation explaining the editioning of the Sugar Cane Twister photogravures. So off I go, purchase a premiere rush video program from adobe and hunch over the computer for hours. Was it worth it? I would have to say a definite yes. The story of the craft unfolded, and I loved how my viewers began to better understand what is involved in the process of making this photogravure. Now, the depth of texture and color, ink and paper can draw you deeper into a story.

And the icing on the cake? The video resulted in a sale! I am very excited that the buyer, who also has another artwork from my PolaVisions series, saw the video and contacted me. They inquired about one of the unique Color Trial Proofs featured in the video that was not even listed for sale. Normally, these Color Trial prints are kept for my private use – but for this lover of art, I knew the art would have the right home.

Conceptually, I am truly gleeful someone appreciated this particular unique print. Sugar Cane Twister is about environmental art and how the past effects the future, and land holds history to be respected. My final split-edition selections for this photogravure series reflects the past and the present. What I feel about this particular one-of-a-kind Sugar Cane Twister proof – is that it visually merges both past and present within one print – to me the viewer feels the morphing of a past era into our current times. Master Printer, Tracy Mayrello, knocked it out of the ball park with these ink colors and Chine collé.

If you haven’t seen the trial proofing video you may watch it here:

Now to catch up on some print signing and begin the story telling of my next two prints in the Telescoping Landscapes series, Ediz Hook, and the Sacred Hoh from Washington. Details coming soon.

Telescoping Landscapes

Sugar Cane Twister RTP2

The art of the landscape capture has many layered meanings – realized or hidden, from the photographic eye.  It is not until one looks deeper that the workings within the images are revealed. Visual fragments offer traces and remnants of history that are both environmental and man-made.

In this series of photogravures, Telescoping Landscapes, I explore what we see on the surface, and through the artworks, tell a story held within.

Collaborated with Master Printer, Tracy Mayrello of Creekside Studio, Sugar Cane Twister offers 12 photogravures with blue Kozo chine collè a la poupèe and 12 silver Kozo prints with Payne’s Grey ink. A pre-publication price of $600 will be offered for the first 4 prints sold and will be $700 after pre-publication. Sign up for my news to see the upcoming print variations of Sugar Cane Twister, along with the story behind this image. The printed image is 14.5″h x 11″w and offered on 26″h x 21″w Rives BFK paper.

Fishing for Iconography Wheat Pasting in Johnson City

A Time to Remember © 2011 Tina Weitz Photography

I am excited to be chosen as part of the wheat pasting project, Fishing for Iconography in Johnson City with ASmith Gallery.  The image chosen is dear to me, as it is one of WWII veterans gathering at the Camp Mabry Texas Military Forces Museum to celebrate a Sweetheart Dance in honor of their service.  Vintage clothing, authentic service uniforms, honoring servicemen and the best live big band in Texas, The Sentimental Journey Orchestra, sweeps everyone back in time.

“Flawed” Exhibit and a Hand-Manipulated time-zero Polaroid Film Image

flawed: an instant film exhibition featuring juror, Michael Kirchoff, will be on view at ASmith Gallery January 15 through March 6, 2016.  I am grateful and excited to be included in this instant (magic) imagery.

receptions | January 30 & February 27, 2016 4 to 7pm
103 N Nugent Ave, Johnson City, TX 78636

about the image:
From the days of fresh Polaroid time-zero film and the hand-manipulation of the chemicals within.  I often did this within 24 hours of a shoot, by heating the surface of the print with a hair dryer to increase the pressure sensitivity of the magic happening directly beneath the thin top surface.  My tool of choice, a barbecue skewer – scraping and shaping the facets of the image to my pleasing.

Beauty Rituals is a comment on the daily peacock rituals expected of beauty and today’s “modern” woman.  These items were pulled from my own makeup drawers in the powder room from my (then) daily quest of this concept.
