Project Fish invites printmakers to join in transitioning paintings into prints. These paintings are about Fish and Heritage. The paintings transition into poetry and video. Printmakers further this journey, developing a visual language for the rising sea levels of climate change, making pictorial images. Apprehending a visual image is one thing. Comprehending a visual image, is another. Perception of a visual image requires apprehension and comprehension, both turning into understanding. Invoking emotions.
In work without apocalypse, printmakers are invited to invoke feelings, to convince their audience that rising sea levels impact personal lives and heritage. That new paradigms for society arrive because of climate change. What - to us - is normal changes, to be abnormal for us in our time, but this new normal is normal for future generations. This new normal is surreal to us. Surrealism is embedded in climate science visions of the future, foretelling a new normal that is abnormal. To match this, new paradigms for visual language are needed. If the world is going to change, so must print making art, as always it does, to reflect temporality.
Require the audience to suspend belief, to picture themselves underwater, submerged, with fish or fish living in the terrestrial. With heritage lost to the sea. The unthinkable. Translate emotions about these narratives and metaphors into climate action.
Contribute to making a new type of mixed media collection. Picture printmakers as story tellers to their artistic peers, exploring a new visual culture. There are untold possibilities awaiting discovery, for influencing positive social change. Including the development of blue humanities. Experimenting to find new stories to tell, all of which have their root in climate science and water. Which are roots also of sustainability goals #6 clean water, #14 life below water, and #15 life on land. To which the UNESCO Decade of the Ocean relates. Make work for showing at the next IMPACT 12.

Hand printing, nature printing, relief print, walking
I have returned to a passion I have enjoyed for decades; nature printing. There is a directness to using a fish, tree stump, deer leg or leaf, as the matrix in printing. Working with handmade papers allow for a molding of the matrix to my hands, letting my fingers see the image. Some of my earliest images printed in the 1990’s were conglomerate stone where I took ink, brayer, and burin into the woods to document textures I discovered. The baren I carried was my hand.
During the summer of 2020, I found myself printing large woodcuts from scrap lumber and the resources of the woods surrounding my house. Setting up a 10 x 14 wall tent gave me a seasonal studio with a series of laundry lines to hang printed paper. Using timbered trees often dead before I cut them down, there were more matrices than I knew what to do with. Working with a glass baren allowed me to explore the history of the land where one could see the encroaching forest reclaiming farmland.
