This is another in the series of cruciform prints, this one done in pure red with a mix of monoprinting styles — the textured red background is etched haphazardly with the images and words to create an image out of the chaos. I did two very similar to each other, and will post the second sometime next week.
This piece is the start of a deeper dialogue about faith and what it means in our society, the connection between worship and the fear of death. I’ve noticed very sharply lately that faith seems to grow as people get older, and I think this older piece still speaks to that phenomenon, among others.
Faith I, 12″x10″ monoprint on watercolor paper, $199 with free shipping.
