Description by the Artist:
In this portrait, an androgynous student sits defiantly in a state between agitation and polite composure inside a historical New England home. The student’s simple bright tie mutes the wild patterns on the imitation Victorian style chair and the floral wallpaper. Using a combination of features, the figure was created from both my own body, and that of a female friend.
This print is the second iteration of the subject of a student with a blue tie, whose predecessor combined techniques of dry point on plexiglass, for fine curving lines, and woodblock printing for flat shapes. Being recently introduced to laser etching, I am able to add this quality to woodblock printing, and create a dialogue between hand and machine carving. This artwork was printed from three different woodblocks, and each copy has a unique tie color.
