Jeffrey Macklin, Talking Farley
42” x 96” – Stonehenge white paper.
Jeffrey is a Peterborough, Ontario based artist, working primarily with relief printing (letterpress) and mixed media. He often employs words as visual triggers, as well as present-day/historical pop-culture icons and figures in both his print work and his mixed media pieces.
How to contain a character as big as Canada itself? Macklin’s 42 x 96 inch lino cut attempts at this momentous task. Talking Farley was hand-carved from linoleum on Jeff’s front porch, summer 2017.
