Lynda Cuddy - A Exhibition Series



The inspiration for this work came from an intersection of my interests in magazine design, typography and photography. I had, prior to creating the prints, been working on the feasibility of starting-up a printmaking magazine and had spent many hours pouring over magazines that I appreciated for their great design, great typography and great photography. Around the same time, I had taken a number of photographs on Granville Island of the end supports of barricades that I saw leaning up against a corrugated steel wall. They looked like a row of large orange capital letter A's. I was beginning to see typography in places other than magazines. I was even able to find one abandoned barricade A, all weathered and worn, which later became the subject of one of the large mezzotint prints.

This A form became part coat hanger, part dressmaker's Judy, on which to try on art styles, part cartoon character appearing in situations that posed some technical printmaking challenge. Could I make very large mezzotint prints, could I print well large flats of difficult colours in lithography, could I make large linocuts? It was a time of exploration.
