Josephine Halvorson’s etching Fire is a life-size depiction of the wood stove at Wingate Studio. As the artist developed her image in real time, in front of the lit stove, she found herself asking, “how does one take something that’s changing and transforming before them and give it form through process?” The barely perceptible moment of a flickering flame is realized through the slow, layered process of etching. This contradiction gives meaning and asks us to wonder by spending time and paying attention. The intimacy of this portrait gives the viewer the experience of an encounter with an object that, like most of the peripheral or minor stuff of life, has a bigger story to tell.
Reflecting on her project, Josephine described Wingate as its own very special shop, not just a shop to make a print, but part of a bigger set of values that includes kindness and patience.
