Summer Work

Since the spring semester ended here at Mizzou I’ve been working a number of prints on my small press in my home studio. These works are actually fairly connected in spite of their formal differences. For a few years now I’ve taken periodic breaks from the figure-based themes and worked with abstract formal explorations based on the dodecahedra and pentagons that appear in those more representational works.

Anyway, here are a good grouping of the new pieces. I’ll post individually for any more that come.
