Heavens Declare the Glory of God

The heavens communicate an inaudible speech, by their very presence offering a universal praise. The sky area in this collagraph includes all of Psalm 19 in Hebrew, its pattern suggesting movement in the heavens.

A collagraph is an intaglio printing process, which uses a built-up collaged plate made from a great variety of materials (strips of fabric, thread, alumionum foils, plants, marbel dust, acrylic modeling paste) that are glued onto the surace of masonite or cardboard. The surface is then painted or inked and run through an etching press at several thousand pounds of pressure, thereby transfering the paint and the texture to the surface of the paper. The process is completely repeated to create another print in the edition.
