The Obstruction Project: October 2019


In stock


October 2019

My best friend Andrea gave me this month’s challenge. I had to use straight lines and edges, there had to be movement away from circles, and I could not use a bird. She really wanted me to draw my inspiration from outside the natural world. Which, if you follow my work at all, is a bit of a stretch for me. She encouraged me to listen to the song “Machine” by Anne-Marie. 

There was lots of talk about impeachment and Elizabeth Warren was the clear winner in the October 2019 Democratic Debates. This print plays with color and line, trying to get at how our differences can overlap, we can move around obstacles, and find our way.

Multi-colored letterpress print with polymer plate, 6″x8″.
