Field Notes from Grief:
The First Year

Judith Gold Stitzel
with Artwork by
Claudia Giannini

From the Artist's Statement:
"Combining different media in the images—printmaking, photography, drawing and collage — is typical of my work. I used geological survey maps to create a sense of place and grounding. Transfer prints of Judith’s journal pages on Japanese paper were glued on top of the maps. Digital photographs were taken during each month and printed on Japanese paper. Plants, animals, words in different alphabets and shapes relate to the time of year or Judith’s writing in a kind of free association."
