When the print hits the fan

Acrylic on paper, 1988

This is one of my earliest attempts at constructing paintings using wood block type. I was still in college and somehow got my hands on a bunch of wooden sans serif type blocks (probably used for making posters). My process was to paint onto the type pieces and then stamp them onto the paper. I do recall thinking of this as cheeky and entertaining, but not serious art. Little did I know that the idea of painting like this would get under my skin.
