Reynoso Art: Schematic Print

This print is going back quite a ways. I made it during my second year of studying printmaking. The design is a simple adaptation of the ‘societal portrait’ imagery I have worked with for years. But, there is a naivete, a simplicity, and a directness in this piece that I still find compelling today. Part of that may have to do with the scale.The concepts in the ‘societal portraits’ are huge- global, species wide in scale. But, this piece is tiny and very intimate. I enjoy the contrast between the simplicity of the execution and the complexity of the idea.
