"Fear" Printmaking Series

For my printmaking 2 class last fall, I had to create a series of four prints focused around a single theme. I was allowed to use whatever method of printing I felt best suited my chosen theme.

I wanted to explore different kinds of fear. I depicted ideas and objects that commonly cause fear. By depicting these fears (whether they are from something real or imagined), I expressed the distortion of reality that phobias can make people see. Fear is a universal emotion, yet it can take on an infinite of number of shapes and sizes. Everyday objects can become menacing, and the relatively harmless things become malicious.
