Ether Teeming with Weighting Happening

1970

Geometric shapes delineated by point. The print surface results from printing with wet-on-wet, yellow, red and blue printing ink.
From the Hello Plato series - each print is composed of geometric shapes, circle, square, triangle, rectangle, the grid and symmetry.

"Shallow space" is indicative of the artists concerns related to her conversations about space at the time (see Greenberg and others). The ground in her calligraphic prints is a maculated surface arrived at from processes she developed to accept "the given" in the work process and to break down and go beyond traditional codes bounding printmaking processes. As Hayter was working in Paris, Lynn developed editions of prints in which the random elements offered by materials and tools in the printing process were given value, thus she created editions of 10 prints, all slightly different and signed AP (artist's proof). As Lynn said at the time, her editions fitted in to the space between the print and painting.
