ARTWORK > Relics

Relics examines the often unacknowledged religious past that underlies our 21st century secularity. The series consists of a series of color halftone woodblock prints (woodcut images made of dots) depicting religious objects combined with scrolls bearing common American English platitudes which could be construed to have spiritual or philosophical content.
