‘misSpelt art – erasure’
These altered prints were created over a 9 year period. Firstly collecting favourite words from hundreds of people. I then created templates for words beginning with the letter ‘C’ and letter ‘S’ which were the basis for 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 and decided to revisit them. I started a further collaboration with artists, writers & poets using the original template of words. These collaborations were the inspiration for painting on the original prints, each individual artworks is on somerset paper, 38cmx38cm. There is also an ongoing artist book with many more erasure poems using the same 2 templates. Shown in solo exhibitions ‘a.be.ce.dar.i.an’ 2017 at LSA & ‘ms’spel’ StAnza 2018.
