“I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say, ‘he feels deeply, he feels tenderly’.”
Vincent Van Gogh 1853-1890

I don’t know why, but I really like wild hair. There’s something mysterious, slightly dangerous, even sexy when you see someone with it. I wanted a floating textile to counter balance the hair. Coverings are good too; something covering the face like a mask. Masks are dangerous with wild hair. What lies hidden beneath the mask, the folds, the layers?

For my first edition, I wanted a very clean almost graphic look. I also used mostly water soluble inks to simulate Japanese traditional woodblock prints. The second edition includes the lines of the lino carving. I used oil based inks to give the edition a slightly different feel from the first run.
