Andrea Starkey Forest No. 16

Woodblock print
Edition of 50
from the Portfolio Dayton Visual Art Center (DVAC) CSA 2017

“Nestled along a trail at Sugarcreek MetroPark grows one of our area’s natural gems and the subject I chose for my CSA print. The Osage Orange Tunnel, a line of trees originally planted in the 1880s to create a livestock fence, has matured into a magical tangle of arching branches that are both appealing and inspiring, and I felt it would be well-represented using traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking methods, known as Moku Hanga. Seven woodblocks were carved and nine impressions of brushed-on ink were hand-pulled with a baren to create the image on handmade Japanese paper. Titled ‘Forest No. 16,’ this print is the latest addition to a series of woodblocks inspired by our surroundings.”

Andrea Starkey is a Dayton-based printmaker who is known for her detailed prints of trees using the ancient moku hanga. She finds inspiration for her artwork from both nature and the natural materials used in its creation. In addition, she is an award-winning portrait artist and has won numerous awards since beginning to show her work in 2009, including The Pastel Journal’s annual Pastel 100 competition.

When she is creating artwork, Andrea works professionally as an architectural renderer and graphic designer.
