Flatbed’s 2020 publication with Melissa Miller is Recovery is a three-panel lithograph. Inspired by the flotsam-jetsom of frequent hurricanes on the Texas coast, Miller draws on the metaphorical mirror found in nature of human disaster and recovery. Working with a panoramic format, Miller intends that Recovery be read as a whole and in time. Vignettes fill the space; visual puns, and hints of both despair and hope, populate the beach. As in much of Miller’s work, the images suggest the impact humans continue to have on other species and their vanishing habitats. The image was hand-printed in an edition of ten from three lithographic plates onto Japan green Kitakata paper in three panels then hinged together making the panoramic image which measures over 11 inches high by 67 1/4 inches wide. Recovery is available through Flatbed.
