Featured works by: Michèle Landsaat  Pacific Northwest (American)  

Through my work as a printmaker and book artist I am attempting to give voice to hidden worlds just beyond my imagination. The pieces shown here are part of larger narratives. At the same time, they were created to stand on their own and encapsulate a moment or experience that does not require knowing what comes before or after. My images are intentionally ambiguous in the hopes that each viewer may experience them from their own standpoint. 

For the last several years I have been working on an artist book trilogy, What Was Lost & What Was Found. The story centers around the motif of a child and her beloved Pegasus. Through them I am exploring love and vulnerability, loss and impermanence, as well as the mystery and wonder of life. Working with these themes is part of my deeper search for a more harmonious connection with the rhythms of nature and an attempt to temper my relationship with a culture that is strongly identified with materialism and rationality.

Another character that appears regularly in my work is the cat. For me the cat tends to embody the wise trickster who does precisely what is needed, even if it doesn’t go according to plan. In these images, the cat becomes the inadvertent hero simply by following his instinctive, sensual quality. 

Both etching and my storytelling technique are alchemical processes — each invigorating the other in unexpected ways. There is something unpredictable and transformative that happens during the long process of creating them and the end result is almost always different from my original vision. Tiny pieces of cut paper adhered during the printing process (chine collé) create subtle tones and contribute to the delicacy and fragility of the imagery.
