Venerism is a word I coined describing the veneration of visages past and present, capturing their unique physical and spiritual essence.

The landscape of a face is a fascinating story.

In this series I use my original graphite renderings via reduction and overlays along with other images to reflect the subject's narrative. In order to achieve the intimate and unique, layered effects I hand-feed the hot-pressed Arches paper through the printer multiple times, as if a printing press. 

Since each print is never the same they are not numbered.

All art is hand signed verso.
