river surface on paper
An ongoing project with collaborator John Broderick Heron, river prints capture river surface flotsam and oils onto paper using marbling technique (without adding any oil or pigment to the water). Pomerantz and Heron have created river prints in most of Philadelphia and New York's waterways, as well as select international destinations.

From Michael Phillips, in the Wall Street Journal, 2016:
Past artists hand made paper from trash and then dipped it in the scummy surface of the Delaware River, creating marble-like designs. “It was a perfect pairing of recycled paper and toxic printmaking,” said Lucia Thomé, the program’s director of special projects.
