Printmaker and illustrator Ryan Price specializes in drypoint printmaking. These days a grouping of serious childlike humans who are often about to indulge in the consumption of body parts replaces prints of a circus theme. The pictures are decidedly odd, yet incredibly intriguing. Price’s characters are well-dressed and well-mannered, looking for all the world as though they are waiting for everyone to be served before tucking in. These parlour pictures are somehow so polite that they appear to be modest about their macabre nature.
