Steven Chapp, The Debate, reduction linoleum relief print, 11.75" x 8"
"The history of the crow in other cultures depicts them at times as the trickster and other times as a positive character. The crows play a simple role in my imagery. My crows are observers and the sentinels of the events that concern me in this world. The crow is an extension of myself in my art." Steven Chapp
