Photocopies, 2007

Early colonial woodcuts, engravings, and drawings illustrate a nature that is resource rich, highly feminized, untamed, unspoiled, and ripe for conquest. These simple collages are from New World woodcuts meant to objectively and scientifically illustrate the flora and fauna of the the Americas. Instead, the results are dirty pictures.

This series was photocopied and put up in natural history and plant biology buildings at several post secondary institutions. If you would like high resolution copies to do something similar, please let me know.
