light, contour, & exciting the cell by Nif Hodgson

$600.00 - Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.
light, contour & exciting the cell reflects on the transforming nature of light and its ability to reveal, suggest, and change what and how we see.

The drawings collect shadows from unseen objects that fall across unremarkable forms to create fleeting structures that do not exist.  If not for the unique light and orientations in that moment, these locations and elements would have gone unnoticed.    

Matte ink is screenprinted on reflective gampi to create tonal inversions that highlight the flipping of the senses. The Venus, New Caledonia, and Copperplate Light typefaces are a nod to vintage pocket atlases and their ‘definitive,’ ‘accurate,’ and ‘complete’ surveys of the known world.

As individual observations are varied and unique, every print is varied and each collection is unique.
