The Pallid Seas of Gahnia Aspera - wood-engraving, silkscreen, graphite drawing, envelope & seed
Inspired by seed germination, the title of this print comes from Umberto Eco, and the composition borrows from Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. This print, by ahem, R. Sexauer, is part of a portfolio organized by Rachel Melis and Kathleen King presented at the 34th Annual Southern Graphics Conference, & will be in an exhibition this March at the "Red Delicious Press" in the Denver/Aurora area of Colorado. The drawing and inclusion of fragmentary text on the small envelope that holds the actual seed depicted helps to solidify my hand in the work. Metaphorically, the seeds and pods are transport systems for both growth and regeneration. In this particular Australian plant, they can lie dormant for up to twenty-five years. Impressive for late bloomers everywhere.

Located at 4959 York Blvd, the reception is from 12 till 5.
That same evening at 7, LACMA will be showing Andrei Rublev as part of their Tarkovsky retrospective, and if you like long, bleak Russian filmmaking as much I do, you won't miss it.

The Los Angeles Printmaking Society has a booth nestled amongst the nonprofits, just a couple down from the CSULB UAM booth. It has a small selection of member works, among them a piece by me (Camilla), as well as two piece from Jennifer Anderson who taught a class at CSULB last year. I loaned LAPS my baby press for the event, so in addition to the prints on the walls of the booth there will be printmaking demonstrations in various media. I'll be there all day on Sunday, so stop by if you attend and say hello.
If you're coming up from Long Beach, you can catch the Blue Line downtown at the transit station, and it will taking you directly to the convention center. Get off at the Pico Station and there you are. Don't forget to bring an umbrella!
