County Fair III

20″ x 16″ 2017. This abstraction focuses on the energy and sound that overpowers all else at the midway of the county fair.

County Fair

20″ x 16″ 2017 The versions of this print are all from a linoleum cut. The first was hand printed; the artist’s proof in green was printed on a press. And finally, the original drawing, completed on location–and what a noisy experience that was!

County Fair, monoprint versions.

20″ x 16″ 2017 I have made a number of different versions of this image. In this version, a collagraph was inked up as a monoprint and the linocut was printed on top. The red version captures for me the loudness and energy of the county fair best of all these versions.

Additive Monoprints

29″ x 21.25″ 2016 Although these prints were made by painting with ink directly on the matrix (a clear sheet of acrylic), it was not like painting at all. Unlike paint, the ink resists movement so it is a battle with materials. One must work against time and drying, even with the addition of clove […]

Reductive Monoprints

Pech Merle

Monoprint, 12″ x 12″ December 2015 This print was made with stencils in completely random order, as I inked them for inclusion in other prints. The result reminded me of early cave paintings, so I appropriated a title used by Elaine De Kooning, who was inspired by the caves of France for many of her […]

Dreamscape: Griffith Park

Reduction Linoleum Print, 15.5″ x 24″ December 2015 In addition to the fabulous examples of Art Nouveau at the Griffith Park Carousel in Los Angeles, the movement evokes a dreamlike quality which was the focus of this print. A reduction linoleum print, also known as a suicide print, requires the artist to print each color […]
