Description

This Print was part of the series I finished for a solo exhibition at Cincinnati's Clay Street Press, part of the second and vertically oriented triptych. The print is entitled "Patriarchy Unbridled (Up Against a 'lil Wall)" and is all about the disgusting culture of misogyny that makes life as a female a constant trial in tolerance. Most of my best and closest friends happen to be female. They are all strong and intelligent women. I admire them immensely, however despite whatever goodness they represent, they've each confided in me their personal experiences of degradation, cat calls, and abuses. Now, I'm a man. I don't claim to be perfect. I don't claim to understand the female experience, but I'd rather make an effort as an advocate than stand idly by. I'd like to think I understand and honor the responsibility that comes with having signed my name to this edition. I try to remain conscious and courteous when I interact with women. When I see fellow men acting like asses, I do my best to be vocally reproachful in a manner that encourages learning instead of further misunderstanding and hurt feelings. One of my best friends posed for the print, and the text featured at the top are words that I wrote. This is one of my proudest works. The print you will receive has a half inch border on the top and sides, and a 3/4 inch border along the bottom. Printed in a limited edition of 13 on Rives BFK.
