Folio containing 12 folded leaves (each 17 x 23 cm) with single or twinned roundels printed on Chinese Paper in ultra chrome inks. Card folio cover with title embossed and silk ribbon fastening.
"Frost patterns grow in fractal increments, their fine etched intricacy conjuring a world of ice flowerings, plants, thorn forests, rocks, and mountain heavens. Printed on fine Xuan paper the fragility of the image is merged with the transparency of the paper. A progression from tonal greys to deep night darks and the blue of dawning gives some sense of narrative sequence, while the framing roundel presents these images as themselves (the here) and as remote landscape world of the imagination (the there)"--Artist's statement.
