A print begins with a premise and a technical process and evolves as it is being made. Printmaking is no longer about making pictures; sometimes prints become the raw materials. You make a choice or the prints make choices for you. Sometimes the prints only begin to make sense when you take them into a space or beyond the frame. Inverse Variation is one such proposition.
It is an exploration of excess through mark making and lithography. It is an architectural experience of the print that involves the artist’s hand and emergent properties of pattern and repetition.
