I’ve been working on a two-part printing process that involved silkscreen and copper plate etching in the FAAP printmaking facilities. My idea was to make some works that could speak to the element of communication in this long project with my brother. At first I wanted to pull excerpts from his letters. This is where the etching came in. But, although the thought of the two processes working together in one piece was interesting, the prints I was making just looked like an exact copy of a letter. Then, I realized that I could just work with the silkscreen, changing the colors of the lines of the note paper image.
These exist in sets of 12 each, and I’m still deciding how to display them.
