This print is about the struggle for overcoming the fear and frustrations of feeling like a failure when learning a new skill. It is inspired especially by the grease femmes, past and present, who have inspired me with their strength, patience, and commitment to amplifying the fluid world we live in. I always need to learn patience, and perhaps others can identify with that feeling. We will eventually hit the nail on the head!
This is a picture of a person with their hair tied behind their head, wearing a striped shirt, kneeling on the ground and hammering nails into a board. The word “patience” is written at the bottom of the paper, in cursive writing.
I created this print using two pieces of linoleum blocks that I glued to a board. So there is a line that goes through the entire image where the two blocks were joined. It’s a very large print, it is over three feet tall.
