Waves rising suddenly and powerfully, a rolling sweep forward.

The flow of water is one of the hardest things to render, and through the course of history artists have come up with their own ways of capturing its shifting qualities. This print is also available as part of the Water Flows gift pack that depicts the particular and universal characteristics of water in motion. Fluidly moving across a range of graphic styles, water drifts, gushes, trickles, and ripples across the surface of paper.

This print is made using environmentally friendly soy-based inks on a risograph machine. Tara Books is among the first to experiment with riso-printing on a commercial scale in India. The medium allows for transparencies and overlays that add layers and depth, making it especially suited for rendering the prints in this collection.
