California Roll

Description

This is my fourth woodblock print entitled California Roll. It was one of my last pieces completed after my thesis and before graduation last May, 2008. It is a reductive color block I did in an edition of 3 with 6-7 color layers. Carved out of 1/4inch masonite, about 18X24, this block took roughly 3 weeks to carve and print. The most challenging part was the registration between color layers, getting them to overlap correctly. This was actually the worst of the three prints I made, only because it's the only one left I could take a picture of. The other two sold immediately following the senior show. Obviously it is a fork stuck in a piece of sushi. I called it California Roll because this particular sushi is not a Japanese creation, it was made in California. When I was in Japan, you quickly learn that it is rude and disrespectful to stab your food with a utensil, while here I see people butchering their sushi by stabbing it with a fork. Fitting that this roll with a fork in it would be from California, then.
