Last night was the opening of the group show texttexttext @ Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Illinois. I wasn’t able to attend-but my extremely arty and handsome husband, Richard, went and showed the flag for me. He’s an artist, too, which really helps! I got a great placement for the piece and am very grateful.
I now have a new web page associated with the gallery. http://womanmade.org/galleries/judithhladikvoss.php
It turned out really well-and it’s another link in the cosmos!
Next blog?- new linocut-with some helpful hints…
It’s a linoleum print/fabric assemblage called “Circular Reasoning”. This piece examines how small changes in word meaning can evolve into major shifts in comprehension. From sanity to insanity and back again. Illustrated with my original linocut prints.
I have been using printing techniques combined with fabric as way of making work larger than I could print on traditional printing presses. Well, one thing has led to another, as they often do, and I now have a series of works I call “Tactile Prints”. I use hand designed fonts, embroidery, found objects, quilting and assemblage to create these pieces. Circular Reasoning measures 5 x 6 feet.
I will be starting to include more demo/printing tips on the blog, shortly. Happy to answer questions, too. Here’s a sneak preview of Circular Reasoning and some studio pix:

“Buxom”, the Tactile Print Wall Hanging
This work was created by using linocut prints on tulle, transfer prints on muslin, embroidery floss on Aida cloth, and vintage print floral fabric. It explores the various words used to describe “desirable” women. It measures approx. 5 x 6 ft.
I employed traditional lino printing techniques along with traditionally female needlework to create this piece.
This work also has a 3-D companion mixed media sculpture.
