Frottage prints on mulberry paper
Eastport is a small series of frottage prints created directly from salvaged architectural parts collected by Hugh French. Printed objects include a well-worn stair riser, a textural wooden archway, and floor grates from the Free Will North Church Project Space. A small border community along the coast of Maine, the town of Eastport is in a unique architectural state, undergoing change and alteration. This handprinted series pays homage to the textures and shapes of this local.
