(Pittsburgh): Published by the artist, 1994. First Printing. Hardcover. No statement of limitation but we can't imagine there were many of these printed. In 12.5 x 12.5 inch cloth covers, the top cover loose, the bottom cover having 4 panels of three etchings each that extend out in all four directions, attached to one another by tan linen strips. A simple tan rough-cut linen "ribbon" ties it all together. An artist's statement on a sheet of paper mounted on foam-core, provides the title and an explanation of the prints. Each etching is on a sheet measuring 12 x 10 inches, the etchings themselves are about 8 x 6 inches. Entitled "Tracks," Temple explains that "this work is part of an ongoing exploration into the nature of the elements, air, water, earth, fire. These prints were printed from plates buried amongst the elements. During the course of a year, at spring, summer, fall, winter – I walked, east, south, west, north. I walked until a piece of the world spoke to me, animal, plant, mineral. I inscribed its form onto the plate, then buried it.... Each living thing has its own correspondence to the elements, the cardinal directions, the change of seasons, the journey from birth to death. The act of tracking involves a keen awareness of place and time usually informed by the direction of the wind, the flow of bodies of water, the slopes of the earth, and the journey of the sun. While following one of life's minute particulars one becomes an active participant, a tracker. Yet at the moment one achieves a certain understanding of the track ahead, a new impression is created behind. That's the tracker is the track, the deer is the man, the man is the tree, the tree is the rock." We could locate no copy of this beautiful artist's book in any institution. Kate Temple (b. 1966) exhibited twice at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.
