ReCollection

Ask me anything   I am an Artist Printmaker who is always collectioning things that catch my eye while staying in one place or while on the road.

My work draws upon personal identity, oral history and the landscapes I live in. Check out the work at www.nathanabel.com.

Sometimes studio time doesn’t involve making things… Rewiring decaying wires in a recently obtained light table. #studio #dailydisbatch  kinda #printmaking

102 years ago tonight the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank less than three hours later. 
Take a look at this photo series from Retronaut highlighting the construction of the ship.

Editioning a new 18 plate Julie Mehretu etching @ Gemini G.E.L.

Five printers pull about one print a day. What a sight to behold!  

Ah behold the patience of the printmaker…  Really love the layers and depths in Julie Mehretu’s prints

I love being on the road the kind of mediation that happens giving me time to reflect on the work and think about and take in the landscape that so deeply influences the things in the studio… Need to recapture the atmospheric qualities that once were so prevalent in my images.   #studio #travel #mediation #dailydisbatch #process

"You’ve got to care about prints. You’ve got to care about woodcuts, lithographs and etchings. You can’t care about whether they sell or whether anyone feels the way you do about your images. I love printmaking so much I try not to care about anything beyond my ego. I keep going because, like the woman who swallowed the knives and nails, I can’t stop. I’ve put my life into it."
