Emblem 133

Information and materials

“Asterisk”, created for ‘The Emblem of my Work’ uses antiquated dry-transfer lettering applied one at a time to create a melancholy emblem of the passing of time.  Once ubiquitous in business and graphic design, dry-transfer lettering is now a cultural artefact denigrated to artistic production.  Using only full-stops, dashes and asterisks, “Asterisk” celebrates the absence, the unstated, the censored and the long-forgotten.
For art in the age of mechanical reproduction, the forgotten is “The Emblem of my Work.”
