GraphicAfire Head Show

This winter, December 2014 – January 2015 (opening and closing on each month’s Second Saturday Art Walk), saw the presentation of the complete series, currently consisting of twenty-four individual linocut prints, of my GraphicAfire Heads at Open Door in the Pomona Arts Colony.

GraphicAfire Linocut Prints

Open Door has a large, empty room, where yoga and meditation classes take place, to display art.
I hung my prints on clips to string fastened to hooks above.

The group of heads become interlinked in the web-like pattern of string, connected at one level, but with each remaining isolated as well, alone unto itself—a head graphic, with an accompanying thought as a title written underneath, on the thin, natural Japanese Washi paper.

It’s been great to see them all up together on a wall.
(When the air conditioner runs various prints gently rise at odd and changing intervals).

Here I am with an approving Uncle Bacon—who got me started doing linocut prints earlier in the year over at the dA Center for the Arts.
