A continuation of the 120 designs collected in her 2012 book To The Extend Of / \ | & -, this set of 9 prints draws from the minimal 3x3 dot system of an embroidery grid, resulting in 8 different stitch combinations. Adopting this structure digitally Calon translates stitches into lines, and a new set of graphic rules come into play: lines may repeat, combine, intersect, silhouette, and layer. Finally, when printed through the process of Risography, depth, gradients, and patterns appear in colors existing outside of the CMYK palette.
For the Picture Room edition, Calon has introduced fluorescent orange and grey in addition to her previous 8-color combination. The resulting prints - made in an edition of 25 - are vibrant, playful, and rhythmic investigations of structure and experimentation.
Sigrid Calon, b. 1969, is a Dutch visual artist. Calon lives and works in Tilburg, Netherlands.
