collithos 3

2020

So far, all my printmaking work is meant to be framed and hung on the wall. My previous work, however, has mostly been sculptural, and it was for practical reasons that I’d decided to only make flat work, which can easily be stacked and stored.

But I’m a crafter at heart and after having made many collithos in a similar format, I wanted to do something different. I made several long collitho strips, which consist of different parts that I inked and printed individually in the usual way and which I then connected with machine stitch.

displayed as a length…
… or rolled up
and in a tangle

This way of displaying them is only temporarily. The different parts are all meant to be framed and hung on the wall.
