ARTWORK > Map Prints

Many of these woodblock prints begin with a wide-angle look via Google Earth at some of the world's most charged places. Over carved topographies, I then layer images, culled from both historical and modern sources, that begin to tell the complicated stories of how human beings have impacted the land and each other in these geographies.

Also included in this set are prints that are about land in a more general way.



Gods and men love maps.
They draw borders with pens
that split lives like an axe.

~ haiku by John Paul Lederach
