In traditional print making practice the original plate or block is destroyed after an edition is printed from it. I find the original wood block a beautiful sculptural piece in its own right. By cutting the block in to pieces and re-assembling it I’ve destroyed the block and also made a new piece. 
This technique was inspired my father’s wood-working projects He would use salvaged wood, cut it in to strips and create elaborate patterns. The idea to creatively destroy the original block came from a conversation with my dad.
The original printmaking piece was created for the 2012 exhibit "Worth Telling" pairing NYC artists and writers. This woodcut is a reaction to a short piece written by journalist and human rights worker Jimmie Briggs. The exhibit was at the Abrazo Interno Gallery in New York City, NY.
This work was created before my daughter was born and before my father passed away. Now looking at it the work has taken on more meaning than when first created.
