FOOTNOTE – x / 175

signed & numbered

Since recorded history, the heart has represented the emotion, thought and reason of the human experience. As a graphical representation, the tracings are a bit more faded. The shape of two swan's necks while courting, the seed of the silphium plant (which in ancient times was said to be worth it's weight in silver), and an early european depiction of female fertility are cited as possible sources. Here's another possibility to add: one day after it rained, a happy someone walked inside with bare feet, stood for a moment and noticed a shape found within the markings of their sole, and then connected it to the realization that love is the foundation of everything.

Each print is handmade, signed and numbered (in a series of 175). A xylene transfer is like a screenprint, but without the screen, and the artwork is hand-transferred inch by inch over a long hour. Each piece is an original, slightly different from the last. The paper stock is a 90lb, cream colored, 100% rag (cotton) sheet with 2 deckle edges and measures 22 x 30 inches. When shipped, the print is slowly and carefully rolled within a larger piece of paper, placed securely in a thick protective tube, brought to the post office and priority mailed with delivery confirmation.
