About this piece:
This work is made from the colorful and abstract off-cuts, discarded waste, and cut-up prints leftover from my work as a letterpress printmaker. The figure reflects the endless dance of shapes and color that printing and typography is for me. It is boxed because this riot of experience is generally kept in the closet by the circumstances of daily life.
