Description

The Jury and Inquisition. Etching diptych, hand pulled limited edition, 7 inch x 10 inch 2011
"Inquisition" used for Cover illustration "THE INDIAN PROPHET" by John Smelcer 2012

INQUISITION
First light had not appeared on the horizon.
I fumbled though the undergrowth beneath the ravens roost.
The sky abruptly exploded with accusations.
I stood in awe of the raven’s anger.
I was not the first to see this fury.

Inquisition:
An investigation that violates the privacy or rights of individuals.
A rigorous, harsh interrogation.
A tribunal formerly held in the Roman Catholic Church and directed at the suppression of heresy
"Heresy":
From the Greek "hairesis", meaning "free choice".

THE JURY- Raven (raven, crow bird) series- Aquatint etching 5 x 7 inch 2011

TRIAL BY COMBAT OR ORDEAL
Having defied the power of God
She stands accused
Her skin is wet, branded and scalded
The clenched soul of the innocent
Is consumed by the Jury

Medieval Inquisitors and Civil Juries developed a number of methods for invoking spiritual aid in determining an individual's guilt. These techniques--which often cost the life of participant--are called "trials by ordeal” and “Trial by Combat”
TRIAL BY COMBAT: The knight who was in the right and honest would be the one to win the day, since in popular medieval theology, it was thought that God would favor the just. Death was likely for the looser
TRIAL OF ORDEAL: An Inquisitor or jury of 12 would solemnly announce charges. They would choose one of three possible trials by ordeal for a defendant: holding red hot iron, being boiled alive, or being thrown into water to see of if they float or sink.

The Ravens patiently wait for their pound of flesh.

I just made a fantastic trade of this print with etsy artist David Bard for an archer"s Raven Quiver. Check out his work!!! :

HOW I CREATE MY PRINTS
I often find inspiration from a traditional or historic account of the raven. First I decide on my title. Having a title helps me with the image and mood of the piece. Humor is often important but I also select titles that force the viewer to think more about the imagery.
Next I look through references to find the right pose or gesture for the raven or ravens. Then I spend hours doing preliminary sketches, followed by a series of drawings using pencil, traditional gouache (opaque watercolor), ink and charcoal. My next step involves using digital technology. I scan the drawings and rework them with Photoshop. This digital tool allows me to adjust the value of the drawing and I can even move and reorganize the image. I use filters if needed. Next I print the drawing from my computer and continue to draw with the traditional tools. I repeat this process several times so the traditional and new technologies merge seamlessly.
In 2009 I began working with photopolymer etching plates. In the past an etching involved coating the plate with a petroleum bases sealer then emerging the plate into vat of acid, cleaning with solvents, recoating, and more acid baths. The process was extremely hazardous to the artist as well as the environment. In 2009 I began working with newly perfected and safe photopolymer etching plates. These are UV light sensitive printing plates, which are exposed in sunlight and processed in tap water!! In the past I would has spent 20-40 hours creating the printing plate. Now I use that time to do my finished drawing. I use my computer and printer to transfer my drawing onto a transparent sheet of plastic. This serves as my negative for the exposure to the sun! I use the photopolymer process to transfer the original drawing to a printing plate from which I can hand print an edition. Finally, I write a narrative. This usually takes me the most time of all!
