Recently, whilst not looking for it, I came across this linocut I made about twenty-five years ago. The inspiration came from the book ‘Notations’ edited by John Cage. This quotation, from the largely forgotten composer Adolph Weiss, appealed to me. With irony there is always the risk that it will be taken literally.
This recently printed version is made more colourful by the use of small pieces of my own paper. I have the idea that it might appeal to some people as a poster – a low cost reproduction. So in the New Year I will commission this and see what happens. Over the years I have made quite a few works featuring text and this design fits into that series.
