Abstract (English)

"Taking the form of a large-scale mural, The Flood is made of woodblock panels that were hand carved by the artist. Typically utilized in the printmaking process, the relief work of the woodblock panels is presented as an artwork in itself, demonstrating the tactile qualities of this traditional technique. Caulfield states that the imagery looks to both the past and future, depicting familiar forms in a cautionary future setting, reminding viewers that the present is destined for historicization." -- publisher's website.
