Going through the closet, randolmy I dug these up. Forgot all about these. Back in 2009!!! If I recall I created this edition for a show in London back then. Don't think it happened but I was left with these strange artifacts. Gave up and packed them away. A few small editions were created hand carving a lino print block then printing on 23.5 k gold leaf and silver leaf on super thick archival chunks of dense cardstock special paper.......
This thickness and texture allowed me to scratch and gouge my way into these pieces revealing a unique texture and patina. Back then I was very focused on the USA flag motif and symbolism. Somehow I created these pieces in relation.
THE QUEEN IS DEAD. Seems like a poignant moment to make these available.
These editions are very small THERE ARE ONLY 6 OF THE GOLD...and I will most likely never recreate this again. If you are a collector of small artistic items these are weird and rare.
