Dox Thrash was born in 1893 in a small cabin on the outskirts of Griffin, Georgia. In many of his prints he uses an innovative printmaking process that he himself helped develop in late 1937. Although the new method was named after Carborundum, the commercial abrasive used in the process, for a brief period Thrash called it the "Opheliagraph" in honor of his mother, who died in 1936.
