Hard at work on new woodblocks…

I’ve been thinking about the collections you see in natural history museums, displays of exotic insects and birds. There is a tension between the beauty of the creatures and the sadness of their posthumous captivity. That was the inspiration behind these blocks.

These are works-in-progress, of course. The details of the butterflies and birds are the next thing to carve. I’m looking forward to working on that this week and perhaps starting another piece.
