Image + Description

Atmospheres

The title of the series, Atmospheres, comes from a 1961 symphonic work by the Hungarian composer György Ligeti that exemplifies his concept of ‘supersaturated polyphony.’ What this signified for Ligeti was a canonic structure so intensive that it resists penetration, as he once observed, “like a densely woven cobweb.” The intricate layers of black, white, and silver inks are the result of transferring multiple drawings to multiple screens that enacted multiple printings. The eighth sheet in the series, for instance, required thirty-eight printings from nine screens. An especially viscous ink used primarily for the creation of braille type increased the buildup of texture, so that these works can (hypothetically) be read by the hand as well as the eye. The concentration of marks reaches a state of visual density comparable to an enveloping soundscape at the thickest point of its sonic weave. - Beth Finch
