“The Battle of the Big Green Clampers”
Hand colored linoleum block print
16 x 22 inches, 2015
One of my favorite still life subjects is that of tools. I’m a long time user of tools and I like the look of tools. I piled up my C-clamps with my spring clamps one day and that first drawing piqued my interest. The next dozen drawings and paintings were steeped in abstraction and I liked them even more. I still make other tool drawings and paintings but I’m finding that the clamps work best in the linoleum blocks.
