Martha Knox
Nyah’s Rabbit

10 x 9 in, linocut, Gamblin ink on Richeson Watercolor paper, 88 lb. When the COVID pandemic hit the USA I was working as a visiting artist with 6th graders doing a printmaking project. Sadly, shutdowns meant we never finished their projects, and I never got to work with those students again. Two years later a stack of linoleum blocks with their drawings on them still sits on the shelf at the museum I work for. This drawing of a rabbit was too good for me to just leave, so this month I carved and printed an edition of “Nyah’s Rabbit” for her. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

Maren Motensdatter, my second great-grandmother, immigrated to the US in 1870 from Denmark during an attempt to escape unrest and rumors of war being planned to unite independent German States.  Because of these ties, I often daydream of Denmark.  This print was created from a photo of a modern city center in Vejile, Denmark.
