WESTBETH

i love doug where does this show up?

Westbeth is named after the famed artists cooperative housing project in NYC and is the print's spiritual inspiration. The print is a little bit of a joke on the importance of the "artist's mark" as a sign of authenticity.  We started with strong brush stroke gestures but then repeated them so you could see they were manufactured rather than handmade. We used a suboptimal resolution to draw attention to the fact they had been digitized.  We wanted to create a print that looked a bit messy as if we output it through an old dot matrix printer. It feels a little broken apart, a little bitty or zine-y, or post punk but still strangely optimistic.
