Description "Winter Landscape with a Monument," 2014, from the portfolio "Drawn from the McClung Museum," 14-color woodcut from five plates by Endi Poskovic. Edition: 1/30

Designed in response to McClung Museum object 2005.2.4, Headrest/Stool, ca. 1929, Karamojong peoples, Karamoja, Uganda

Artist statement: A Karamojong Headrest/Stool from the McClung Museum is depicted in my color woodcut Winter Landscape with a Monument, as a massive abandoned structure situated inside an altered and haunting landscape. The representation of topography in this case is loosely based on images of the country of my birth, Yugoslavia, present day Bosnia and Herzegovina. This hybrid blend of personal and found imagery in my print creates an amalgam of possibilities allowing the viewer to peer into the window of an imagined environment that is at once recognizable and simultaneously abstract. Resisting the possibility for logical classification, in my print the unfamiliar becomes almost tactile, while the familiar provides a handhold on reality.
