ALPHABET – x / 175

signed & numbered

A few years ago i noticed these empty sign frames on the Santa Monica boardwalk. At one time i imagine there were metal or wooden signs in them, but i had never seen any. Just the frames. One of the frames was near a playground next to the parking lot and i had this idea to put my own sign in it...something to help kids learn, but also fun for the parents. Last winter i finally decided to act and create a sign for the frame. The week before it went up, the city cut the frame off from the cement base, leaving nothing.

This was the front of the sign (ALFABETO was the back)...it's based on a kid's joke.

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.
