11″ 17″ Risograph print
About the piece:
This two-colored Risograph print is based off of a collage and directly inspired by my obsession with Modernism, a time in history that I tend to romanticize. Two of my biggest influences are Saul Bass and Paul Rand – both heavy hitters in Modernist design. They instilled in me the love of saying (or implying) a lot of information with as few colors and shapes as possible. It’s a really satisfying challenge that can leave a strong impression. This piece is a numeric play on jazz theory (the pentatonic scale) and the carefree era of all-night jazz clubs.
