Double-sided print. Printed using linoleum blocks & a photopolymer half-tone. It is an exploration of time, physically through the multi-layers of yellow ink (the number escapes me now, but at least 5 runs of yellow) as well as conceptually.

This was a memory of the tallest horse in the world at the Iowa State Fair, circa 1983, as well as the annual ballon race that happens in Des Moines, Iowa. Both of these images are strongly connected to spending time with my Grandpa, Herb Plambeck.
