“In this series of books, drawings, and paintings, I am exploring aspects of American history and legend that still haunt the present, including concepts like manifest destiny and the persistence of American exceptionalism. The print aspect of the project, six hand-silkscreened books (of which four volumes are completed), was inspired by the woodblock prints of the great 19th-century Japanese artist Taiso Yoshitoshi and his masterwork One Hundred Aspects of the Moon. While his subjects were famed Samurai warriors, tragic lovers, and notorious villains, my analogs are U.S. presidents and other political provocateurs, American wars, civil rights battles, and human-wrought climate catastrophe.”
— artist David Sandlin
