A large collection of black and white images.

Word Maps

Much of my work over since 2012 has been generated off of the digital image Eighteen Hours, 1,600 Miles and 500 Tiles, with the squares applied to different grids and formats.  These one inch by one inch images can be seen as cryptic, indecipherable letterforms, topographic symbols or landscapes.  Through the repositioning of the squares, I have created images that compose different variations of Word Map and play an accenting role in my Labyrinth: AMazeMeant silkscreen constructions.  You will find these glyphs present in all of my current work.

Similar to the conceptual approach used in my Mayaglyph prints, Word Map woodcuts dissect and reassemble drawings from earlier prints, creating cartographic images with glyphs and graphic marks repeated throughout the series.  Some of the same patterning found in these prints has also been used in both woodcut and silkscreen methods as the backgrounds in my Alphabetic Excursions print series.  These images were conceived as individual prints, triptychs (see below), as part of the Word Map Grid chine digital media and woodcut chine- colle prints and as material for artist books (Word Map 6).
