murals and hand drawn typographic compositions form UK artist/typographer liz collini, drawn for example painstakingly in chalk and then when finished, erased…

I make different forms of texts using simple but often ambiguous words and phrases, mostly through printmaking and drawing. There are gaps and overlaps between reading and viewing, text and image, the hand and the machine. I try to create breathing spaces in which we can pause and look back at language. Whole narratives can be compressed into a single word or familiar phrase. The drawings’ resemblance to plans and blueprints reflects the strange provisionality of language; the things about which we write are always elsewhere.
