[“There is no blue without yellow...” — Vincent Van Gogh]
just posted some new work, that's inspired by this poem "The Latitudes of Desire," & lots more. notice how the pages of my copy of Sparks from a Nine Pound Hammer are stained with wine, which show the love I have for this book, which I showed the poet, Steve Scafidi, when I met him at dinner & he signed it at a poetry reading a couple years ago.
& lucky that James Lewis Tucker of The Aesthetic Union & I are in collaboration talks, about the colors & the color blue (& all the other things that stem from that hue), which also inspired the new work & more + is leading up to amazing collaboration action.
more soon, ❤️
"There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun."
- Pablo Picasso
although I've been thinking an awful lot about blue lately, since I have a collaboration about to start with one of the most talented & amazing artists that I'm grateful to know (more on that soon), I've also started some new prints with the first color being the brightest & applying it by using the vandercook like a really really heavy paintbrush, as #letterpressIsntJustForLetters, & I can't wait to see how this unfolds!
