Synopsis

In a lyrical style that embodies the atmospheric effects of the art form it explores, Michigan creative Mary Brodbeck turns the camera on her own artistic process. Alongside a demonstration of the making of a woodblock print in the Japanese tradition, BECOMING MADE offers a glimpse into the searching mind of the artist as she observes and interprets the coastal landscapes of the Great Lakes. As both filmmaker and artist, Brodbeck captures the composition, vivid colors, and sense of otherworldliness that still intrigue lovers of ukiyo-e landscapes. BECOMING MADE is a rare look at how an artist makes and is made by her environment and her art.

Ideal for those hoping to be inspired, or wishing to inspire others, in this form of printmaking and the artistic process in general.
