Mother

Price
$20

Mothers who do everything they can to make ends meet.
Mothers who’ve lost their families to violence.
My own mother, who I spent weeks taking care of as I carved these two blocks with her in front of the television.
My aunt, recently passed, who was never anybody’s biological mother, but who provided deeply for so many in her long and full life.

Strength, resilience, and power in the face of domination, indifference, and unknown futures.

It is also true that I am very much into bears – biologically, culturally, mythologically.


This new, third edition of this print is the inaugural edition run on Jeanie, my newly refurbished Craftsmen Machine Co. Imperial platen press.
This process creates slight variations in each individual print.
