Italic capital alphabet by CHRIS ELSEY

Italic capital alphabet by CHRIS ELSEY



This alphabet was designed directly onto the stone which reintroduces an element of risk into the process. Carving each line before drawing out the next, starting at the top. Winging it makes you think more 'in the moment'  as the need to resolve problems spring up, an example of this is the “V and the W”. Letting yourself take risks gives me more confidence to try something different, subtle changes to form as in the letter “Z” where the stress on the centre stroke is opposite to a more conventional calligraphic form.

Carved onto Portland stone, light textured finish to surface, letters painted with acrylic ink. 770mm x 270mm.
