One of a suite of five woodcuts. Printed on Arches Cover with inks hand mixed from pure powdered pigments and plate oil.

In each of the “Array” prints, Deese divides the space of the circle into unique tiling patterns, using nine equal radial divisions. He then sub-divides these pie shapes into equal areas using additional radial lines and inscribed circles. While essentially abstract, the “Array” images have a tangential relationship to the landscape and watersheds of the upper Merced and Tuolumne Rivers in California, an area beloved by the artist which has inspired much of his artistic output. An earlier eponymous sequence of monochrome painted objects that accurately model the topographical shapes of this landscape was the genesis of the tiling patterns, and the Array opus can be seen as a continued meditation on the configuration of this geography.
