A Sorry Print
Entitled A Sorry Print, this silkscreen was editioned by faculty and students at the Kansas City Art Institute in 2014. Though not designed to be entirely legible, the content of many of the notes and lists in the image relate to things being out-of-order, broken, unavailable, or in an otherwise “sorry” state of affairs. This piece operates for me both as an apology to myself and my former long-time partner in life and art for things that might have been done “better,” or at least leading to different results. For viewers without direct personal connections to any of the artifacts depicted, I am hopeful there are inroads of relatability, as well as an overarching sense of both humor and poignancy – in essence a sampler of contemporary humanness.
