Self-squaring and Double Acting 2018

A business card-sized mantra (2018).

I’m continuously drawn to mantras in the wild. While in residence at the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity, I worked out of the letterpress studio to produce a limited edition of business card-sized mantras that appropriated descriptive language found on the printing press itself.

Printed at the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity,
Banff, Alberta, CA
First Edition of 150
Letterpress on Stonehenge White,
250gsm archival paper, 3.5 x 2 in.
