Painting - Woodcut Print
I was trying to achieve a photographic quality when I was carving this woodcut. I'm pleased with the result. I carved a poem into the bottom of the block, of which the title of this piece completes. This composition is based on photos that executioners produced of people just before they were executed. I suppose it was some kind of record. They were executed because of their political beliefs by Pol Pot and the Kymer Rouge. Today, some people just don't want to think of such things, which means they can continue to happen. The ostrich comes to mind. I think about this a lot because I want to express difficult subjects seriously as an artist. I know I reduce my audience when I do this.
