I’ve spent a lot of time in the Democratic Republic of Congo over the past few years, and I’ve been amazed each time that I’ve been there by just how hard people work. This print is a salute to that, but also an attempt to look at what people everywhere want, and why they want it, what they’ll do to get it- and whether or not that’s a good idea. A little esoteric, to be sure, but it’s been a while since I’ve tried to bury a lot of meaning in a print, so humor me here. This was carved in Kindu, DR Congo, and printed at Flight 64 studio in Portland, OR, USA.
