Looking at Miro



Metal Photo Print from an image of the original woodblock.

I carved Looking at  Miro into baltic birch plywood as a woodblock for printing. It’s made after a sketch I made in the ’80s, I think at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

The idea for this piece came from my visit to the Guggenheim Museum in 1984. I’d been visiting a friend from pottery school in Vermont and took a side trip to New York City. Being a young artist, art museums were a significant part of my itinerary.

As I walked the spiraling corridor of the museum, I was lucky enough to be looking at a large colorful abstract painting by Joan Miro, at the same time as a woman whose black hair and long blue sweater blended perfectly into his design. I made a quick pen and ink sketch which I later used as inspiration for a woodblock print.

As a sculptor, I was as fascinated with the woodblock as I was with the print. I framed it and gave it to my parents. This metal print is made from a photo of the woodblock. It continues to be a favorite in our gallery.
