Mixed Feelings #5 - Piles


Japanese-method woodblock (moku hanga) with transfer drawing
Image size: 10.25" x 17" (26 x 43 cm)
Paper size: 12.5" x 19" (63.5 x 98 cm)
Paper: Shikoku White
Edition: 10

This is the fifth print in a series examining figures of speech about money that use the same metaphor for both wealth and poverty. The "pile" in this image is based on a photograph of a pile of dried cow dung. The words in black are modeled on my father's handwriting.

Four more to go in this little series of works.

I love this series and even more, I love that you have collaborated with your father. I'm sure if he was still living, he would be quite proud of the the artist that you are and the depth of your pieces of art.

Thank you, Leigh. Your comment about my dad means a lot to me. I hadn't called it a "collaboration" in my own mind, but that's a wonderful way to look at it.

Your prints are very provocative and thoughtful.
