Tales from a Patriarch: An Exploration of the Art and Business of Printmaking
At first glance Tales from a Patriarch is simply a visual family history from the perspective of the men in my family, specifically my grandfathers, my dad, and myself. However, the decisions and the personal connections to a location that have led me to this point in art making reveal deeper issues that span beyond my family and beyond Dunkirk, New York. Through Tales from a Patriarch I am examining the economic state of small town America through the culture of Dunkirk, NY and the history of my family.
