I have been making woodblock prints for 25 years. I while back I began to add bits of ephemera, photos, old letters and book pages to my prints. As I print on these scrapes from the past I allow happy accidents to come from a loosely guided randomness. Working this way has effectively opened the door to a whole new way of thinking about printmaking. Now these iconic images carved into wood have discovered a way to travel back in time so that I can begin to understand what came before me and up until now was not only out of reach but hidden.
