This original print consists of several motifs positioned on a background, these motifs originate from calligraphic drawings, they consider the relationship between writing and a pictorial image.
This print is made by inking glass plate with a specific colour to which paper stencils are place over, some rolled up with another colour some not, the plate is rolled through the press, the stencils adjusted more ink is applied pressed again and so on. It is a method I enjoy very much as the artist is able to adapt and try different ideas as the printing progresses. As you can see it produces some interesting results.
THIS IS A UNIQUE PRINT IT IS NOT AN EDITION. IT IS ONE IN A SERIES OF SIX PRINTS.
