Back in 2019, I enjoyed a residency at Duke University and had generated a shape that just wouldn’t leave me alone. In 2023, I worked with printmaker Bill Fick on a short run of screenprints to commemorate the UNLESS shape inspired by The Lorax. Throughout our collective pandemic experience I found myself reading a great deal and took comfort that other humans had not only survived but thrived in challenging times. These altered prints are the result of that admiration and gratitude for those words that kept me company. Bill pulled the prints, and I added the words in red gouache.
