The Solutus and Legitimo prints represent an attempt to move away from ideas about myth and literature and consider ideas of disorder and questioning the need for structure. While the subject matter seems to subvert organization and symmetry, the line, shape and color are applied specifically with an awareness of how these elements interact on the picture plane. The process is controlled and specific while the images look chaotic and unrestrained. Ambiguities and distortions in the case of line and shape overlap and blend together as if in the process of transforming chaos into order. The images I created for this series appear haphazard and contain a quality of turbulent instability.
The Solutus series of prints celebrates the personal significance of the creative process; exerting control and restraint; using technique accurately; and being fully immersed in the activity of making the print.
