This series of exploratory prints was initally included in our 2018 exhibition Shape Song, at Nashville, TN's historic Hatch Show Print, a legendary letterpress print shop that now operates from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and features an exhibition space called the Haley Gallery. For us, these works explore the conceptual physical connection between music and graphics through evaluations of surface, pattern, and the pliable nature of plastic.
The portfolio includes six screen prints on Tyvek.
1. Anthropometric Verso, 14 color passes with enamel; 2. Deceleration, 8 color passes; 3. Infinite Descriptor, 6 color passes; 4. Infinite Descriptor at 50%, 6 color passes; 5. Polyangular Timepiece, 15 color passes with blind emboss; 6. The Knell of a Circle, 11 color passes with enamel.
