Coco Berkman Gloucester MA 2015 color linoleum 22 X 30” I was strongly attracted to Romaus Stefanelli’s lithograph, “La Aissa” because of the beautiful lights and shadows, the symmetry, and the studied perspective in his image. It was the clarity of his characters that inspired me most; even though some of the people appear blurry, obscured by shadow or are far away, you still get a strong sense of them. My intention with my print was to hone in one of the groupings of characters in “La Aissa” and come up with a story. I did many drawings before choosing to make a linoleum print with the drawing that most made me laugh.
