Modest Proposals for Public Monuments

The “Modest Proposals for Public Monuments” series of drawings and prints originated in Muncie, Indiana where I taught from 1995 through 1997. Without access to a print studio, I began to make simple hand-cut and hand-printed stamps on top of my drawings.

The “Proposals” function as a reconnaissance of two unrelated domains: the vernacular of turn-of-the century American architectural revivalism of college-campuses, freemasonry temples, state buildings, barns, places I saw in and around Indiana, and the 16th- and 17th-century structures of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the country of my birth, demolished during the 1992-1995 Yugoslav Wars.
