Trained as a painter, Wendy has focused on making monotypes for the past twenty years. In 1996, she moved from New Mexico to the Pacific Northwest and found inspiration in the lush, veiled atmosphere of the region. She began making tonal monotypes exploring the subtle and evocative light of the Northwest landscape. Her intent is to reduce the landscape to essentials, evoking an emotional space that invites you inside while retaining a painterly flatness and tension.

She treats the monotype process like painting in many ways. She works to create an equivalent of light by building up translucent layers of etching ink, often scratching into the surface after pulling the print from the press and adding additional marks with cut up credit cards and inked rags. Clouds are made by wiping away forms on an inked plate with sharpened sticks and soft cloths - a deeply pleasurable and meditative process.

Wendy Orville is featured in BIMA's group show, Revering Nature, currently on view in the Feferman Gallery through June 4, 2017.

Tracy Lang spent the first part of her career perfecting watercolor, the second part making giant woodcut prints, and now works in between the two. She uses digital color and thick ink to create storyboards of yet to be lived experience. You can find her at her tattoo parlor in Winslow on Bainbridge Island. For fun she works on the boat and takes long hikes with the family up mountains and on ocean beaches.

Tracy Lang is featured in BIMA's group show, Revering Nature, currently on view in the Feferman Gallery through June 4, 2017.
