Losing Ground

A plea for awareness of our role as stewards of the environment, Losing Ground combines traditional and print-on-demand technologies. Printed by Acme Bookbinding with the HP Indigo press 5500, a limited edition of 100 was bound by Acme in black Brillianta, and a deluxe edition of six bound by Harcourt Bindery in aubergine Nigerian goat. An embossed and patinated 8” x 8” copper title plate was set into each cover. Details, printed on vellum, silver, and photo gloss papers, were tipped in, and graphite, colored pencils, markers, metallic pigments, embossing powder, and leaf were used to add texture and reflectivity. 12 x 12 x 0.5 inches, 30.5 x 30.5 x 1.5 centimeters. Created 2009.

Dorothy Simpson Krause’s work combines traditional and digital media in large-scale pieces, artists’ books, and book-like objects that bridge between the two forms. Krause is professor emeritus at the Massachusetts College of Art, where she founded the Computer Arts Center, and a member of Digital Atelier, an artists collaborative, with Bonny Lhotka and Karin Schminke. In 1997 Krause organized Digital Atelier: A printmaking studio for the 21st century at the Smithsonian American Art Museum for which she received a Technology in the Arts Award. She worked with curators in a Vinalhaven Graphic Arts Foundation work-tank/think-shop, Media for a New Millennium, and demonstrated digital printmaking at the opening of the Brooklyn Museum of Art’s Digital: Printmaking Now. She has been a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome, an artist-in-residence at Harvard’s Countway Library, and the Von Hess Visiting Artist at the University of the Arts Borowsky Center in Philadelphia. Krause is the author of Book + Art: Handcrafting Artists’ Books, to be published by North Light in 2009, and coauthor of Digital Art Studio: Techniques for combining inkjet printing with traditional art materials, published by Watson-Guptill in 2004.
