Tessellated Snake
Materials: Ink on Paper, Linoleum Cut
11" x 14"

About this Artwork:
This print takes inspiration from all of my favorite things. Nature, mythology, folk lore, and quilting combine forces to make to make this 11x14 linocut, letterpress printed in one color on medium weight drawing paper. The composition is a tessellation, so it can be repeated several times to make a pattern.

The four-headed snake references the hydra, a creature from Greek mythology that has several heads. It is said that when one head is chopped from the hydra, two grow in its place. In the same way that the snake/hydra repeats itself and gets tangled up in itself, the hexagon pattern also repeats to multiply itself and create a complex tessellation.
