We just launched Gretchen Wagoner’s Mating Hera Buckmoth print over at The Working Proof. This is a two-color Gocco print on Arches Rives BFK 100% cotton rag paper. 15% of each print sold goes to the Jane Goodall Institute, a global nonprofit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things.
About the print:
The print Mating Hera Buckmoths is the continuation on a theme I have been exploring within my work for the last year or so. I am fascinated with butterflies and knots. My interest lies in the delicate yet resilient characteristics of a butterfly as opposed to the robust and stabilizing mechanisms of a knot. Natural examples of conformity and a deviation – both are symbolically used to describe physical characteristics brought on by strong emotional reactions. Having butterflies or knots in your stomach may physically feel similar but evoke completely different emotional connotations.
