Old is New




So I am going back to move forward. I have taken some old digital prints I made in 2005-06 and I have made new works in chalk pastels. These works are my first attempts at creating word art that was not related to the handwritten signature. These works were very minimal and very sleek in design. I took a word like "Painting" and I mixed the letters and duplicated the letters until I ended up with a piece that pilled text. The hint of letters were just visible. Well back then I was concerned with the absolute perfection of the line, so a digital print made sense, but now, I love the slight imperfections that hand crafted drawings can create, so I am happy to make imperfect pastel drawings.
