Piece description from the artist
I've been watching a ton of Mad Men lately. Imagine my surprise when I started carving away on a linocut and began to see Peggy Olson emerge in the Day of the Dead style!
Julia Forsyth was born in Oklahoma, raised in Louisiana, and received her painting degree from Baylor University in Texas.
For the past year, her work has focused on linocut printing. By carefully overlaying the black ink of a linocut print onto the colorful maps, Julia creates associations between specific regions, places, and memories and the printed subject matter. Her work often incorporates natural imagery with bold, colorful textiles and patterns.
When she is not amassing a sizable mound of carved-out linoleum shavings as part of the linocut-making process, Julia spends time with her husband and her two children.
