About this piece:
The images on the die are one-color linocut prints based on personal photographs and collage images. The text die is one-color, one word screen printed.
The piece is comprised of two dies. One of the dies has six images of materialistic objects such as a sporty car, lavish jewelry, popular electronics, a luxury boat, a fancy closet and a showy house. The second die has words related with human feelings toward objects. People strive to acquire material things. They desire to possess, have to have, need to have or desire certain objects. We live our lives throwing the dice, the dice tumble – we tumble, randomly. They keep rolling, tumbling, rolling, tumbling. Is it all a matter of luck? How do we know when to stop rolling? Can we stop tumbling?
