I was invited to be a part of an Alumni printmaking exhibition for Converse College this spring, since I haven't done printmaking since undergrad, I decided to play around with some new things. The first of which was drawing inspiration from a recent trip to the lower part of the state where agriculture is still king industry wise. Old house and barns coexhist effortlessly with shiny silos and brand spakin' new farm equipment. This juxtaposition of the old and new is one of the things that make the South such a unique place. The layers of a place are visible here and history never dies here. We always remember the good and the bad, which is the way it should be. Driving through this part of the state reminded me of that and inspired this triptych. Next week I'll post some more in progress shots, so be sure to check back!
