All-Encompassing, Christina Ondrus
17 1/2 x 28"
This poster project is derived from a series of text-based drawings, called All-Encompassing, which uses phrases and diagrams that attempt to describe the ineffable magnitude of the cosmos. Inscribed tablets serve as visual reference for these delicate graphite drawings. A recessed shadow makes carved inscription visible, but here, a poster made at the same scale as the original drawing uses reflective metallic ink to illuminate the text on an opaque matte background. From a distance, the text appears as a series of indecipherable vertical marks, perhaps a mystical code. Upon closer inspection, the text is revealed as legible, while the illusive nature of language remains. The interplay of light and shadow visualize revelation and concealment.
Used posters with a little wear and tear are cooler than crisp new ones. But if you want to buy a new one, you can. Visit X-TRA
