Here is a new woodblock that I’ve been working on lately. It’s printed in black and white on a very fine, almost translucent Chinese paper. I’ve completed an edition of 10, and I have plans to do a version with color as well.

The second picture, though a little blurry is the inked block on the press bed.

PrintZero Studios organizes regular “print exchanges” where artists engaged in traditional print arts such as intaglio, relief printing, silkscreen and lithrography create a limited editions of prints. Each artist submits their eddition of 15 identical prints and then receives 13 different prints back from other participating artists. Two prints are kept by PrintZero Studios for their archives and traveling exhibitions in order to share the breadth and depth of artistic endeavors in the fine art printing medium. The exhibits serve to promote the appreciation and understanding of the medium and a dialogue of artistic exchange.

Please join us for the Seattle exhibition of PrintZero Studios Exchange #7 during the Georgetown Artwalk:

Drawing of the Aphrodite of Morgantina, a limestone and marble sculpture presumed to have been looted from a site in Morgantina, Sicily

Aphrodite of Morgantina
Graphite on paper
30 x 22 inches

The Aphrodite of Morgantina is a larger than life size marble and limestone sculpture which is believed to have been looted from an excavation site in Morgantina, Sicily. The sculpture was purchased by the J. Paul Getty museum from a London art dealer who had bought it from a Swiss family. The swiss family had purportedly been in posession of the sculpture since 1939, which is the same year that the Italian governmen, in an effort to preserve the cultural heritage of the region, passed a law preventing the removal of antiquities from the country.

The J. Paul Getty museum has since reached an agreement with The Italian government to return the sculpture and several other antiquities. It will remain on display at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles until 2010.

More info at the website for the Illicit Antiquities Research Centre. More info about the sculpture at the Getty Museum.
