‘misSpelt art – erasure’

These altered prints were created over a 9 year period. Firstly I collected peoples favourite words, then I created templates for the letter ‘C’ and letter ‘S’ which I developed into acrylic screen prints. It was only then I spotted my major spellings mistakes so stuck them in a drawer.  Several years later I discovered Erasure poetry so I started to collaborate with various artists, writers & poets using the original template of words.  I used these collaborations as inspiration for these unique artworks. There is also an artist book with many more erasure poems using the same 2 templates.  Acrylic and graphite on somerset paper 38cm x 38cm
