About this Artwork
This work is part of one of 4 on-going series of large works on paper.
The name of this series, "Yappanoise", is inspired by one of the numerous "monster-words" and neologisms invented by James Joyce in his last and famous novel "Finnegans Wake". It directly alludes to the essence of the artwork:
- "Yappan" - the material used here being Japanese ink
- "Yap" - sudden bursts of color marks spread over the white paper
- "Noise" - referring to the sonority of colours
The horizontal and vertical lines, in black and grey hues, intentionally provide rhythm to this work, and enhance it's musicality, whilst the ridges of paper convert it into a 3d object.
