Entangled Encryptions is a series of unique color woodblock prints. I highlight and reveal hidden symbols, codes and messages, by layering together a core set of seven blocks that are sequentially related. This series focuses not only on the emergence and camouflaging of my marks, but also has given me the chance to explore unique color relationships that are new to my artistic practice. Consequently, due to their physical layering, my colors are richer with their transparent qualities contributing to the complex surfaces of these prints. I have emphasized the dynamics of my prints by grouping calligraphic marks of related analogous colors together and juxtaposing them with similar forms comprised of their complimentary color counterparts. As a result, I am able to amplify, isolate and disguise the interwoven marks and symbols found within each print through my use of color.
when something or someone is ensnarled, intertwined, confused or perplexed, entrapped and involved in difficulties or complicated circumstances from which it is difficult to escape
the process of converting information or data into a code, especially to prevent unauthorized access. By changing everyday language to codes or symbols, especially to hide its meaning, encrypting is a way of keeping secrets.
In technology it using an algorithm to transform information to make it unreadable for unauthorized users. This cryptographic method protects sensitive data by encoding and transforming information into unreadable cipher text.
