The full title of the piece is:
The Pink Umbrella
Monday Night, June 1 @ 11th & Pine
Capitol Hill, Seattle
$15 from the sale of each print will be donated to Wa Na Wari, a center for Black art and culture in Seattle’s Central District neighborhood.
I was driven to create this print edition after seeing the uncalled-for escalation of force by the Seattle Police Department against peaceful protestors in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, during the protests against police brutality and the murder of George Floyd.
This is a varied edition of prints: each print is unique. Edition numbers 1 and 2 are printed in black ink; numbers 3 and 4 and printed in black ink and colored with pale pink watercolor; numbers 5 and 6 are printed with a dark purple ink.
These prints are a departure from the linocut block prints I typically make. They created using the intaglio or drypoint printmaking process, where ink is captured in the recess of an etched block and removed from the smooth high points; the ink caught in the crevices of the design is transferred to the paper.
This is an extremely limited edition of just six prints; the variation you select above will be the one you receive.
