bohemian press

So of course (apparent after reading what I chose for the iron pour) the print that I like most was Paula Marty’s “Space Invasion?. the giant tantacled monster from outer space grabbing and tearing at the puny buildings on earth. sort of a sci-fi campy feel with the pop art “Krunch? and the cartoon grids. I like the large size too, how it filled up the wall like an enlarged page from a comic book. the old school lino cut I liked also.I like the visible blade marks left on the lino, the stark high contrast black and white with hints of color added. I didn’t really like the space and display though. at night, it was too dark to see the artwork well, and during the day, the light reflected on the plexiglass and was too distracting.
