I don’t find treason laughable. Or bribery. They are among the most serious threats to America. Responsibility and the law must address these foul grievances. Today’s print is several years old. Substitute U.S.A. and Russia for Switzerland? Except, and accept that this is not going to happen soon. Constant vigilance.

Yesterday’s monotype, “Natural History: Bill of Rights”, was true. View more from this series on my website: http://www.hladikvoss.com

Aquatint etching,linocut, trace transfer monotype. Monoprint. Edition 1/1.  For sale! Contact me for details on purchasing through my blog or etsy site.

12″x 18″. Framed 24″x 30″. Printed on Rives BFK white archival paper. Edition 1/1.  Each print background consists of 2, differently colored, inked, aquatinted copper plates printed over each other. This produces the variegated stripes.
Then I employ a variety of printing techniques: linocuts, collograph, etchings, monotyping, chine colle, etc., to create the subject. I design all the fonts by hand.

Little did I realize, when I began this series of etchings, that real politics would become part of my artwork. Fake News???? I am posting one of the over 100 monotype etchings: Natural History:Alexander Hamilton, today. True or False? I will answer this in my next blog. Censorship is the antithesis of art. I believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all the hard fought laws that American citizens gave their lives to defend.

Original premise: Pliny the Elder (who died in the Vesuvius explosion ) tried to collect a book of all knowledge-the first encyclopedia – and did he get a lot wrong! But even so, much of it still believed today.
