Phish Summer 2019: Mohegan Sun

20190715_110144.jpg

“..but the net’s unbreakable
So don’t worry about falling”

The eleventh print in my Summer 2019 series. This print was created during the Mohegan Sun run, and finished shortly after.  I was inspired by the song Mercury, and the Durer woodcut “Astronomer” (1500) seemed fittings.  I turned the figure into the mythical figure Mercury, and behind him are the symbols for the Sun, Earth, Mercury, and Venus, as well as the Mohegan Tribe symbol (2nd symbol down).

Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and  hand carved and printed. Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a violet variant of 7.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. Prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

Phish Summer 2019: Fenway Park

20190708_133048

“Thunder calls through waterfalls
Rising tides and ocean walls
I can hear you when you sigh..”

The tenth print in my Summer 2019 series. This print was created during the Fenway run, and finished shortly after.  I had chosen image a while ago, not realizing how apropos it was.  For Fenway, I was inspired by Dürer’s print of Saint Sebaldus (1514).  Sebaldus is the patron saint against cold weather, and was a hermit who took residence near Vicenza, Italy (where I grew up!)  He usually depicted holding the church he helped start in Nuremberg.  It seemed fitting to have him holding Fenway Park, which many may consider a church in it own way.  This was a challenging block for me, both for the amount of time I had (started 1st night of Fenway on Friday, finished carving the following Monday), as well as trying to carve a 3×4 Fenway Park.

Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and  hand carved and printed. Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a pink variant of 10.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. Prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

Summer Tour 2019: SPAC

“I must inquire, Wilson, can you still have fun?”

The ninth print in my Summer 2019 series.  This is the print that almost didn’t make it with me at Saratoga Springs.  I was actually carving it on lot in Camden, which was fun because it actually helped a lot of people understand the process.  I finished carving it, and printed them the night before the shows.  For SPAC, I opted for the horse racing theme (yeah, I know it’s been done before!) Albrecht Dürer had done a lot of prints with horses, but his wood cut “Saint George and the Dragon” (1504) caught my eye with its king in the background, which made me instantly think of Wilson.

Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and  hand carved and printed. Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a lime green variant of 10.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color. I had these with me on lot at SPAC and the remaining  prints are now available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com

“And she knew that what she made would be the finest in the nation”

The eighth print in my Summer 2019 series.  I was very excited to work on this for my hometown show! In the hopes of some dark jams and evil Phish during the  Camden run, I looked at some of Dürer’s prints for the Book of  Revelations.  I took a portion of his print “The Whore of Babylon” (1498) and reinterpreted it as Reba on a Multi-beast on the banks of the Delaware with the BB&T burning in the background.  They actually ended up playing Reba, Tela, and Antelope during the run, but no Sloth.

Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and  hand carved and printed. . Both editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a watercolor variant of 7, as well as edition variants.  Due to the nature of the process each print may slightly differ in background color.

“Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff”
-Henrietta

The sixth print in my Summer 2019 Series.  For the Merriweather shows, I was inspired by another of Dürer’s prints that he created for Book of Fools, this one titled ” Impatience When Punished” (1494).  The Lizard Fool  makes another appearance (the first was in my Bonnaroo print), and I choose to replace the bagpipe with a vacuum, and included a guitar, a drill, and a Moog synthesizer in the foreground.

Prints are 9×12 on 11×14 paper, and printed with Supergraphic black ink by Bill Fick. Both editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper.

“Passing through the corridor I came upon an aging knight
Who leaned against the wall in gnarly armor
He was on his way to see the king”

The fifth print in my Summer 2019 series. For the Charlotte show, I was  inspired by the Dürer woodcut titled “The Knight goes out and commands two scribes and two priests to compile this book” (1493) and the song Lizards.  This is my second print to feature the Lizards, depicting the first meeting between Col. Forbin and Rutherford the Brave. as well as the Rhombus in the background

“Looking for owls?” the young man asked..

The fourth print in my Summer 2019 series.  Inspired by the Dürer woodcut titled “The Owl in Fight with Other Birds” (1516) and the song Buffalo Bill.  This seems like a proper print for the Blossom show in Cuyahoga Falls, OH.  My owl was drawn to be not as scary as the original print, and I made the leaf into a cherry blossom, as well and included the venue in the background.

Prints are 9 x12 on 11×14 paper, and printed with Supergraphic black ink by Bill Fick. Black and white editions are printed on 140 lb watercolor paper, and the color variants are printed on 98 lb mixed media paper. Black and white are an edition of 30, and a creamsicle variant of 20. A very limited amount of prints are available in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , the rest will be sold on lot at Blossom.
