While visiting Hamden, CT in the summer of 2021 in preparation for our exhibiiton Carrier Shell: Images on/in/of/and the Built Environment, we also worked with Alexander Valentine of Sparkle Taffy to publish a new print, Window Licked. Printed by hand over the course of several days in his newly opened studio and project space, Window Licked took cues from our immediate environment. The work aims to visualize distance and complicate perspective in this diffused graphic encounter. Is the frog jumping or falling? Do seagulls have belly buttons? Would blue stop signs be effective? Floating in a sea of amniotic halftones, these questions and more await your calculated introspection.
