Dark Clouds in the Land, is a series of three small, carefully developed and printed etchings and mezzotints invaded with ever-wide-open google eyes.  The prints tap into gnawing anxiety of our political and civic moment.  The choice of media is deliberate:  Early Western modernity is charted, mapped, illustrated and described in precise languages of engravings and etchings.  Wiggly-eyes  and dark clouds of worry come from vernacular language of comic book, a language of contemporary anxiety graphically mediated.

Printed in edition of 14 each at the University of Akron’s  Myers School of Art with Charles Beneke and his printmaking students.  I am endlessly grateful for their hard work, jokes and hospitality.
