LINK TO SOURCE


This is the earliest piece in the WORDS FROM OBITUARIES series. When I made this work, I did not know it would be generative of a large group of works that follow a system. The series, like much of my other serial work (e.g. the Text-Textiles), is ongoing. The images in the series are shown from the most recent (2022) to the first (2010).

The latter is followed by a selection of exhibition views.
