Youngblood’s work explores the passing of time and the tension between the human longing for repetition and – at the same time — change. I am particularly interested in our human ability to see what we expect to see, to misinterpret, to see a partial picture as the whole, and/or to overlook the significant.   

“Unexpected Moon” one of four from the series “Stormy Weather” uses the lines and patterns from daily weather maps and images of weather – rain, snow, clouds, hail — as visual metaphors for these ideas. It explores the constancy, variation, and violence hidden within the familiar, reassuring seasonal cycle. I also use images of oceans – stormy, placid, or dramatic– as reflections of human moods and emotions.   

Created with multiple plates using soft-ground drawing and aquatints, the plates were printed using a la poupée technique.
