Sherrie York, “Come Along, Dear”, reduction linoprint, edition of 15, 12″x18″, BFK Rives paper

I’ve long enjoyed the work of Sherrie York and her skill at creating complex reduction linoprints.

About this piece she writes:

The title of this piece was known long before I even drew it up on the lino… in fact I’ve been thinking about this concept for a couple of years. It’s a quiet family outing… the adults are creating very few ripples because they are moving slowly to accommodate the speed of their offspring. One curious chick is distracted by a twig. A parent lets the little one wander for a bit… and then gently encourages the young explorer to rejoin the group…”Come along, dear.”
