Excavation // James Lewis Tucker

from 100.00

Reduction linocut with handmade inks by James Lewis Tucker explores a childhood nightmare and a dream of restoration. Colorful layering of different consistencies of ink saturate the paper, giving depth to print that's normal reserved by painting alone. 

"In back of the barn is a dark pond. It was a place where you didn't want to touch the water. A lone white fish swam circles and water moccasins guarded the steep embankments. When I visited after 13 years oil slick the surface and weeds poked through the middle. Quicksand. Tall grass and branches hindered much of a visit. That night I had a dream of draining that childhood nightmare. Digging buckets of mud from it's depths. Carefully taking the last fish and putting them in fresh water. Finally reaching the bottom, I found there was clear blue water under it all and it started to fill again. Bringing life."
