The Solutus series of prints (Solutus and Legitimo) can be seen as a metaphor of regenerating the self. There is a sense that unexplored elements of pattern and shapes are merging in an effort to create a unified whole. Ideas of anxiety and control are combined through layers of warm red hues overlapping cooler blues and greens. The complex design isn’t being taken apart, but instead seen in the process of coming together. The vibrant, swirling compositions maintain their structure without the use of symbols seen in the earlier series.
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.
