A new mono-type print/silkscreen inspired by the documentary, The Beat Hotel, and contour figure drawing sketches. Thank you Lazaro Amaral for staying with me at the Print Shop, keeping me company and printing into the wee hours.
This is a wooden block ‘5 by 7’ with mono print and type written word with a spray paint stencil eye on it.
It reads ‘Look into the allusive ‘I,’ want you to know that i’m a rainbow with you.’ on the outer sides and the middle section reads, ‘The world begins with you. Your soul is the whole world as it focuses on your moment’
Silkscreen prints on a wooden block. Exploring text as pattern and trying to loosen the importance of the word to the artistic effect, experimenting… I haven’t made it to the print room in a while as it’s under renovations so I’m having to use old images and print at home. I throw a tarp down and make my living room/hallway space a working print lab, eyeball estimating space and printing on my knees, hence the wonky alignment in some of them, I call it adding to the ‘artistic flair’ keeping my fingers crossed, never sure how it’s going to turn out until it’s done.
