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

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.

Happy Sunday! I wanted to share another monoprint with you today from the “Natural History” series. Over 100 unique images in the series, and counting. Something fun!  True or False?

Finally able to edit and publish the live performance of my video piece, “Prom”. May of 2010. Haven’t been able to work for quite some time–so glad to be starting back to my life again!  So, there is a long list of “must finish”.  This is one of them.  I did my first video artwork in 2009-got a chance to have a live performance in 2010.  Very last minute-I was lucky enough to have some great actress/improv/artist friends that stepped up to the plate.  Learning experience.  You really do need some kind of audio/lighting! This was made with a Flip videocamera on a tripod. Not so bad when you consider that.
It was a cold reading, without rehearsal. I think the actresses did a super job. Jen Bosworth, Jocelyn Geboy and Courtney Cole Brobst. The performance was at Art on Armitage in Chicago, IL., courtesy of Mary Ellen Croteau, who let me have the use of her gallery space!. Thanks so much for the opportunity. Good to be able to start working again.
On YouTube. The produced video version is on YouTube, too. Watch that one first.
My cousin, Meghan Stromberg was an actress in the video production. Scarily wonderful!  Jocelyn Geboy, a gifted improv performer, took over her part in the performance. ( Meghan was a little too pregnant with her daughter, Sabrina!).
The installation was created with a vintage mannequin and prom dress.  The fetus carpet was made from my original linocut printed on silk, sewn to felt and “sutured” with embroidery floss. About 5-6 feet in diameter.
(Hi, Yoko! I think you will find the subject matter unfortunately timely.)
