Polymer Plate Relief, Archival inks, Archival Paper Stonehenge 250 gm.
Printed/Published by Master Printer Brent Bond of Santo Press, Scottsdale, AZ.

These black and white relief prints were inspired by an antique broadside print titled “El Mundo al Revés” a late 19th century, relief print I saw over 10 years ago while traveling through Spain. These old prints illustrated entertaining scenes showing the world’s natural order in reverse. They were popular in Germany and the low countries during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. One of the latent functions of these prints was to remind people of the proper order of things by showing them in reverse. There is very limited information as to the history of these prints, but the imagery and the concept stayed with me.

It wasn’t until recently that I was able to bring this print project to fruition. Interestingly enough, I also happened to be listening to an audio book titled “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safron Foer, a book about the factory food industry of meat and their unethical treatment of animals.
