Beth Moon. Odin’s Cove #5. Limited Edition.
Odin’s Cove #5, Platinum print Ed. of 12
Odin’s Cove is about a sense of place. It is a celebration of the beauty of nature in a visually stimulating landscape where untamed bramble and ivy suggest ancient origins. Where a regenerative view of the earth can be found, in the lush cliffs that gently slope to the sea, where music can be heard in the beating of a raven’s wing.
This project evolved from a series of trips to a very special part of the California coastline where I developed what I can only call a friendship with a pair of ravens. Over a three-year period I made many trips to this unique area and as my relationship with the ravens grew – they taught me many things about their lives and personalities.
Part pirate, part prophet, makers of magic and mischief, their throaty calls can be heard echoing through these hills. This series portrays their trust in me, their loyalty to each other, the territory they rule, and their life in the wild.
The prints are hand coated platinum and palladium metals on cotton water color paper printed by the artist herself. In the process, pieces of the metal are embedded into the paper resulting in a 3-dimensional appearance & prints that can last thousands of years.
