woodblock print, ed. of 10, image size 11.5 x 7.5 in / paper size 17 x 12.5 in

Typically, before I begin drawing a new piece, I work with a printmaker who applies color to my drawing paper using a lithography press in a shared printmaking studio. In March, as COVID-19 precautions were being put in place, I had about two drawings worth of prepared paper. As the weeks passed and businesses shut down, I realized I would no longer have access to an essential part of my process, and I began to think about other ways to stay productive. Ultimately, I decided to focus my energies on a series of prints, but I needed to figure out a way to make it work in my studio without a press. This led to my decision to make a series of woodcut prints. In June, when I ran out of my paper, I began carving the blocks.

In this series, each final print is made with five separate carved blocks. All three Quarantine prints in the set are made with the same five blocks, printed in the same direction, but using different colors and transparencies of ink, to arrive at three distinct final works.
