I made this piece about 9 months ago from collected printed scraps, but was never really happy with it. In my critique class, it elicited the question, which I treated as rhetorical, "Why are you a printmaker?"
This week I gutted it, changing its shape and infrastructure, and added additional elements to the surface, re-sewing many aspects. It retains its original materials for the most part, and is the fourth in what I had originally intended to be a series of 5 prints, but I think I may leave it at this one.
Materials: Relief print on fabric, welded steel infrastructure, buttons, polymer clay
