MARGARET MERRITT:  Printmaker and Papermaker
SOARING: TRYPTICH
2005
Pulp Paintingr/Lithograph
30" x 120"
This tryptich, “Soaring,” done in collaboration with lithographer Anita Dillman, "Soaring" is in the permanent collection at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

The "paint" for this artwork consists of a slurry of pigmented plant fibers and water: the papermaker's pulp. To form landscape and incorporate a lithograph into each panel, I applied colored pulp to a wet base sheet and also added handmade paper birds.

Many smaller study pieces, as well as other paintings similar but not identical to each of the tryptich panels shown here, are available for purchase. Please contact me for more information.
