Details from a variable edition collograph print made with an old French Press. I had so much fun with this project!
This variable edition collagraph print was inspired by the story of Sadako Sasaki. Sadako was a young Japanese girl who became terminally ill after the bombing of Hiroshima. While in the hospital, she attempted to fold 1,000 cranes, since there is an ancient saying in Japan that whoever accomplishes this will be granted a wish by the gods. Sadako completed her goal, but sadly, passed away shortly after at the age of 12. A statue of Sadako holding a golden crane was erected in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park after her death with the inscription: "This is our cry. This is our prayer. Peace in the world."
I created the collagraph matrix by gluing found and recycled objects such as coffee sleeves, paper towels, and burlap onto cardboard. The cranes were cut out of cereal boxes and were placed on the matrix after inking- a process which allowed them to move across the sky from print to print.
