One Is the Holiest Number #2

One Is the Holiest Number #2 - At One


"One Is the Holiest Number #2" is a meditation on the different states of being one. At one extreme, we feel isolated and alone. At the other, we feel at one with everyone and everything. Mostly we live in between, shifting in an instant at times, and at others at a painfully slow pace. Although illustion tries to persuade us otherwise, we are always One.

I used three different printing techniques for this book: intaglio, linoleum relief, and letterpress.

 

 

 

 


I scanned my ink drawings and converted them to negatives, which I used to make photopolymer plates to print letterpress on the Vandercook 219 at Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
