The image of the unmanned boat surrounded by water gives me a sense of calm as well as an anxious anticipation. A vessel captive to the whims of the wind and tides.
"ADRIFT" is an image I carved into linoleum in 2015 and have been putting out editions about once a year since.
"SUMMER 2018" is an edition of 18.
This one here is # 10 of the 18 created. It has a nickname as well. "Blood in the water".
Each edition have over time accumulated new approaches in technique and execution.
And each image of the edition is unique and are treated differently with acrylic wash embellishments done prior to the layers of ink.
Each of the pieces are made of oil based ink block prints on wood blocks that are 3/4" thick.
After the inks have dried, the whole block is coated with a thin layer of matte varnish to help preserve the work.
Each of the blocks are approximately 5 1/2" x 6" with some slight variation in lengths.
The backs are signed, numbered and have a saw tooth hanger making them ready to hang!
