The Working Proof: Susan Schwake - On the Rocks

It's Tuesday, which means we released a new print today over at The Working Proof: On the Rocks by Susan Schwake. On the Rocks was inspired by Susan's many trips to the NH ocean:
"We scramble upon the rocks looking for sea glass and often find ourselves simply sitting and staring out to sea. The blackbirds have appeared in my work since the fourth year of my studies in college and represent my obsession with birds in general. With On the Rocks I hope to evoke the sense of quiet and calm that we get from our trips to the ocean."
On the Rocks is a gelatin monotype on 310 gsm archival etching paper, with additional hand-painted elements in India ink. Each print was printed on the same plate twice, with the inking process being matched by eye. The birds were hand-painted with India ink on each of the 50 prints. Due to the hand-made nature of these prints, each one is one-of-a-kind. 15% of each print sold will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières.

Buy the print here for $45, and read more about Susan in our interview here.
