“My series is called Notations, and reflects my love of letter forms and typography, of words and language, and a delight in the visual and tactile properties of old books and documents, especially those that are creased, stained and foxed. I’m interested in surface variations and the play of light on shiny areas contrasting with the velvety softness of old papers. In a larger sense, they’re about communication, nuance and layers of meaning. I’ve stencilled some letters in shiny etching ink, occasionally adding metal leaf, and printed letterpress ornaments and a Chinese character. Some papers have been prepared by pouring and splattering India ink. The tiny photographs are my mother at ages 20 months, 3 years, and 25. Other images are from dictionaries and old steel engravings.” ~ JJ
