about this series:

This series of woodcuts is probably how most people first come to know Tyrus Clutter's work. Images from this series have been widely published. The series inadvertantly began when Clutter participated in print exchanges sponsored by Baren Forum. He had no idea that from those first prints the series would grow to the size it has. There is usually a specific narrative behind each image, though the artist tends not to fully explain them and leaves the interpretation a bit more open. The Pieta image is actually a reinterpretation of Fillipino Lippi's image in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. It was created for CIVA's 25th anniversary as part of the Codex VI: SILVER portfolio. The Entombment image was created for a CIVA printmaking exchange of the Stations of the Cross.
