Carnage of the Poms
2010
Woodblock
29x63
The first set of prints, the large scale micro-mural, depicts a scene of pomegranate carnage using several layers of woodblock relief. In this work the visual aspect of pomegranates are explored at a micro-level, it can be read as a landscape, a war scene, and a kitchen counter all in one. The scene depicts a close up version of some opened pomegranates but the sheer scale of this work makes the pith seem like mountains, the rind as a leathery carcass and the deserted seeds left in solitude like fallen soldiers.
