Love texts such as "Me waiting for You, Me adoring You", "You observing Me, You saving Me" etc. are embroidered with white string on sturdy sheets of etching paper.
By folding the paper in half and placing it under the etching press with a maximum pressure, the love quotes flow into each other.
The workpieces have two equal sides, they have no front and back side.
The Love Letters series of works are developed at the graphic studio Daglicht in Eindhoven during a year long working period. Commissioned by the City Art Center of Rotterdam with the aim to experiment with graphic technics in big size.
