Inklings indexes matter and mark intrinsic to printmaking. The series is a self-referential experiment of oil-transfer printing that buoyantly engages themes of contact and intimacy. For imagery, I referenced physical concepts and mechanics at work in the printing process: flocculation, colloidal electrostatics, and capillary actions. Simultaneously, I alluded to contingent pairings and groups: a baker’s dozen or Tic-Tac Toe. These gestures became quips about unconscious, yet vital, forces and attractions integral to waking life. As such, Inklings evolved into an homage to intimate natural and cultural forces constituent to reality.
