Colfax Linoleum Cuts by Elizabeth Kurtak

"I have always been fascinated and a little frightened of Colfax.  I was born in Denver, and we drove by these signs when I was a kid.  We moved to the mountains when I was 4.  I often drive Colfax all the way from my parent's house in Aurora to I-70 because I find it relaxing and it is a good way to get out of town during rush hour.  I wanted to do all my favorite signs while they were still up.  I prefer to work from my own pictures and show things as they are existing now, in my day.  Everything becomes "vintage" and "history" before you know it, anyway.  I hope to make some paintings, too, but I thought this medium, linoleum cuts, was a great choice for this subject matter." - Artist Elizabeth Kurtak
