After Some Time
One in a suite of 7 prints
This project is a collaboration between Ken Botnick and Diana Guerrero-Macia, as a response to traveling in India together in 2008. Each print takes inspiration from an idiom or popularized piece of language found on signboards, trucks, or matchboxes. Inspired by the sign painters of India we allowed some play to occur between the letterforms that are typographic and those that are hand drawn. Colors and forms were abstracted through a process that reduced and distilled the visual intensity found in the streets of India. At times a kind of virtual collage was added through scanned bits of wrappers and fabric picked up along the way. There are 10 copies of 7 prints each, printed inkjet and letterpress, in a printed paper envelope. Out of print.
