MARGARET MERRITT:  Printmaker and Papermaker
BLACK TURTLE
2008
Stenciled Paper
8.5" x 11" (image), 11" x 14" (mat)
David Carroll's writings about and drawings of turtles inspire a series of paper turtle prints, including this one.

I sprayed pigmented cotton pulp through a stencil onto a wet base sheet of kozo paper to form the turtle image in this artwork. More pulp spraying added the "water." The completed paper painting was air-dried on a wooden board.

The finished piece is mounted on a white cotton rag mat. All materials in the stenciled paper itself and the matting are of archival quality.
