Campbell Steers Linocut Stripe Men

Campbell Steers
Artist Statement

If you hadn’t noticed yet, I’m hopelessly obsessed with bicycles. They inevitably become an essential component to my art—and it’s fitting, as so much inspiration and idea generating is spurred by the sights and sensations experienced by pedaling them around. This series of linocut prints honors the two-wheeled machine and explores its different personalities—from playful to sympathetic to serene. For me artistically, this series is an active leap into the imaginary. As much fun as it is to be on the ground, it’s also fun to catch some air.

This series was printed under the redwood foliage in the beautiful print studio at UCSC.
