Hi everyone. Here are a couple of brand new woodcuts. These images are from an abandoned nuclear plant construction site in South Carolina. The reactor was about 3/4 built, then they just abandoned the project. That was more than 20 years ago and the site has remained untouched (except for lots of fresh shotgun shells and beer cans). It's a very eerie, surreal place.
I climbed to the top of this tall observation tower that overlooks the whole site. I was unable to get onto the little deck at the very top because a hawk had built a huge nest over the entry hole. 2 hawks were circling the tower the whole time I was on it. I guess they were making sure I wasn't there to evict them.
Technical: 4 colors each, 1/4 inch birch plywood, Graphic Chemical litho inks on Arches Cover through the ol' Dick Blick Econo-etch.
Also, I just totally redesigned my prinmaking web site: www.danielallegrucci.com so check it out. Thanks, Dan Allegrucci
