Project Description

The inspiration for the piece originated in the history of the Ampersand which is the merging of two letters to form a single symbol. This symbol of the bonding of the two, as in love and friendship, is overlaid with an intricate, beautiful and painstakingly woven spider's web that represents the various ways relationships organically generate their strength and connectivity, which is both durable and sustaining, and yet delicate and fragile.

Production Lesson(s)

My art is created out of lines and I had to be careful that the lines are not too thin. Silkscreen requires a minimum of .75 pt stroke. I went a bit thicker, because I used a metallic ink which is a thicker colour and I wanted to be sure that the ink goes through the screen. Learning process is: Using a .85 stroke works perfectly.”
