OTHER NEW PRINTS
I'm pleased to announce the publication of four new prints. My mezzotints frequently include some burin engraving, but these miniature format engravings are my first executed entirely with the burin. The images were inspired by my graceful Weimaraner, the small 17th century caricature etchings of Jacques Callot, and my love of calligraphic gestures.
Reflect, Repose, Rejoice, Refresh, 2017, Burin engravings, Each image: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches
The prints, published separately, are printed on 7 1/2 x 6-inch sheets of German Etching paper
OTHER NEW WORK
My newest series of paintings uses objects to address timeless human struggles underlying events of our times. In these images, an articulated wooden hand stuck in a water valve dripping sludge is surrounded by murky shadows representing the layers of indifference that poison our water. Or, the myth of Icarus evokes the perils of succumbing to misguided entitlements and hubris, while a solitary exposed marble questions a society that alters children’s perceptions of shooters from toys to school intruders. In this way, material possessions are reinterpreted to reflect our changing cultural values and ethos.
