Wood Prints for SALE!

The first semester at PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) went by so fast. It still feels like the beginning. One class that I really enjoyed this semester is Relief (Woodcut). You can think of it as a big wooden stamp. I loved making the prints so much that I have decided to sell a few.

My process with Woodcut is simple. I use the grain of the wood as inspiration and following the pattern. I love to use all my gouges (woodcut tools) to create unique textures. Then I would test the relief with color. I would spend hours figuring out the perfect color combination. And once I have figured that out I would make multiples of the print. If you have anymore questions about my process please comment.

Want to buy please email me at art@emilyfujiemair.com

Remember these prints are handmade, so each print is unique.

The Road Not Taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

-By Robert Frost

Doug Wheeler

Something that everyone must do really soon, is see the Doug Wheeler exhibit at the David Zwirner Gallery is Chelsea. It is a once in a lifetime exhibition that would change anyone’s perception on art. I felt as if I was in another universe where spaces is endless and time stops. Its an experience that everyone should live, so go see it. Please comment if you have seen it though I would love to know your interpretation of it.

NYC Public High School Cover Design Competition

This is my design for the Directory of NYC Public High Schools Cover Competition. Although I am not a finalist, I am extremely proud of my hard work and my design, and I hope to share it with as many people as possible. My idea was that NYC has many special public high schools and that students have the unique opportunity to choose the high school that is right for them. There is every single NYC Public HS on this Design. Each borough is color coded; Brooklyn – Red, Manhattan – Green, Bronx – Purple, Queens – Orange, Staten Island – Blue. I would really appreciate you sharing or liking this so that my desire to have the public see my work can happen. Thank you!

How to look find a school:
1. Find the school name on either the Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Manhattan or Staten Island picture of the HS list.
2. Find the hand written # near the name.
3. Use that # to find which part of the grid the HS is in.

Also please like on Facebook!!!!!! Please!!!!!
