Produced in collaboration with Gallery 16, The Flowering (The Fourfold Sense), is a unique portfolio consisting of thirteen original prints by Darren Waterston, accompanied by original texts by Tyrus Miller, exploring the senses and bodily experiences of Saint Francis of Assisi. Released in June 2007, the colorful prints were created using a myriad of traditional and contemporary print-forms involving etching, chine colle, relief printing and digital pigment printing; the accompanying texts were produced in letterpress broadsides. Limited to an edition of forty, each suite of prints and broadsides are contained in an exquisite handmade cloth covered clamshell portfolio case made by John DeMerritt.
