I am one of Shakira's biggest fans and one of my favorite song is one called, "Las de la Intuición." A line in that song inspired this piece, which is about giving in completely to love and desire. The song says:
Yo me propongo ser de ti
Una victima casi perfecta...
Translated that means: "I propose to be your almost-perfect victim"
In this letterpress, I used the same image but offset it a few times, to create the feeling of chaos. This piece was printed on a Vandercook letterpress on Rives BFK archival paper, using linoleum blocks and a polymer plate.
The secondary image here show the letterpress process.
