Arbitrary Inspiration


These two screen prints were the result of selecting my subjects at random. Using a random word generator I selected two pairs of words and creating literal illustrations merging the concepts. In my illustrations I sought to layer meaning into the fusion of these arbitrary pairings. For one the pair was “Cormorant” and “Knitting” and for the second the pairing was “Woman” and “Water. The visual interpretation of these words is meant to allow the viewer to write their own story into the image. The illustrations were inked with a brush and then digitally separated to make three color prints.
