July 2nd, 2010 Fremont First Friday Art Walk

6-9 PM

3409 Woodland Park Ave N.
Over the past 6 years, Ephraim has been developing a unique technique of “rusting“ metal on paper. The process allows him to collaborate with various forces of nature to create shape, pattern and texture from found metals. The collaboration unfolds differently each time; some working as a print, suggesting form from the metal, while others are shaped into paintings with rusty water, powder pigments and water-colors.
