I started experimenting with shapes of raw color with my little Albertinas, printing squares within squares of different colors. Then I began to dream about stripes so I made tiny Gene Davis-ish prints with yellow, gold, orange and red. Now it’s Frank Stella and I’m crazy over the idea of concentric circles, with each arc a different color. I could never achieve the perfect lines and subtle hues of a real Frank Stella. Mine are copycat to begin with, too brightly colored because I cannot do less than that, and a bit lopsided. I like to think that they are pulsating, like the beating of a heart.
They do make me smile. I call them Stellinas and here’s the link: www.etsy.com/listing/201948335/abstract-linocut-cards-bespoke-inspired?ref=shop_home_active_9
Thank you for the inspiration, Mr. Stella. You’re a genius!
