Catching up with documentation #2: Ghosts: ACR/MEJ # 26-37

The following blind embossed woodcuts, Ghosts: ACR/MEJ # 26-37, were made during 2011-2013. In June 2016 I de-framed these works so that they could be properly documented for the first time.

Background: An earlier post on my blog (dated 06/08/2012) documents the objects that these woodblocks directly reference. I started making the objects in the early spring of 2010 by hand stitching panels of fabric into the leg holes and waist bands of 12 pairs of mens underpants. The objects, ref. Ghosts: ACR/ MEJ # 1-12, were then filled with sand and photographed, ref. Ghosts: ACR/MEJ # 13-24. I then cut out the abstracted shapes documented in these photographs to create a template for the embossed woodblocks that I would make. This suite of prints was conceptually conceived as a blind embossed series.

This suite of woodcuts, and the associated objects and photographs, references a primary document that is held in state government archives.
