This letterpress project was the first time working for wooden block letters in the ink lab. You might be wondering why I chose to typeset “NOPE” in all caps, several times. The reason being it was the project I did immediately after my first reductive relief print. PHEW! See: Frida Nouveau.
This piece was featured in Figure One’s ABBRVTN, an experimental group exhibition responding to themes of fragmented communication and translation. This exhibition ran from April 22 – May 13, 2016 with an opening reception on April 22 from 5:00 – 8:30 PM. On May 6 at 6:00 PM the gallery hosted a performance featuring dancers and poets embodying the theme of abbreviation within their movements and words.
