Collection: Four letter words
L I N O L E U M P R I N T S C O L L E C T I O N
I have always been fascinated by words. I like how they sound in repetition and how they have strength in seclusion. What began as an experimental exercise in the use of restrictions quickly turned into an exploration of meaning. I began by gathering and reviewing words comprised of four letters. These words were then strung together to form fully comprehensible sentences, which eventually became a paragraph, and ultimately, a poem. A dialogue specifically, seemingly with oneself that speaks of reconciliation, self-acceptance, and self-love. In this collection of small-scale monochrome linoleum prints, typography was used to illustrate the poem. Hand-pressed with block printing inks on premium cotton paper and sold as a limited edition series of 200 copies per artwork. Each print is considered unique due to the differences in its outcomes during printing.
