Printmaker's Heritage: More than Gaelic


Detail Linocut, Translucent YUPO, Waxed Irish Linen Thread, Grommets, 65+ carved glyphs, 45 pages, 15 panels 7.5' x 75' This installation chronicles my 2015 artist-in-residency in Ireland. Inspired by ancient the megalithic art, ideology, and Gaelic heritage, which is enmeshed in contemporary global culture, the carved and printed glyphs mimic megalithic carvings and translate into words and phrases, telling a literary story of my journey. It was originally exhibited with 65+ glyphs printed on 45 pages, bound into fifteen 7.5 foot high panels, and spanned 75 feet.
