Mirror Drawings is a bound suite of screen prints by Drum Machine Editions’ Summer 2021 Publishing Resident Claire Whitehurst (Jackson, MS). The thirty images in this collection—originally conceived as drawings and monotypes during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic—appear here as mirrored pairs. Borrowing inspiration from the lush natural world of the South, the linework and iconography compose a personal landscape of idiosyncratic symmetries: listlessness and ecstasy, loneliness and wonder.

Hand-pulled by the artist using 50 unique colors and gradients. Spiral-bound with 20mm green coil. Binding, technical assistance, and additional printing by Erik Pedersen at Drum Machine Editions.
