A Dialogue

Dialogue between True-mouth and Greedy-goods, screenprint, edition of 14, 38 x 56 cm  (15 x 22 in), 2018

I am a member of the Comox Valley Printmakers Association (@comoxvalleyprintmakers). I am also frugal. If I’m paying for access to a fully equipped print studio, nothing is going to stop me from making use of it, except for some kind of apocalypse. Maybe.

Although I am happily working away on etching and collagraph for the class I am auditing, as well as working on my collage project, I had no specific idea for a screenprint project. Rather than make nothing I pulled an idea from one of the collages into a screenprint.

I chose the title from a 1637 Dutch book written by Adriaen Roman, Samen-spraeck tusschen Waermondt ende Gaergoedt.

Collage Declarations

The beginning of an 11 part series. Based on text and ideas from Sara Ahmed’s Declarations of Whiteness.
