I have worked a lot with textural panels. I feel they are worthy artworks in their own right even though I often use texture as a part of a larger artwork. I love the regularity of the letters offset by the irregularity of the stamping.
These were all done with my metal letters and a hammer. These are industrial letters used for stamping machinery. The middle panel was an interactive piece done by various people at Art in Action one year.
Here are the letters and when you scroll down you’ll see the two paper ones in context.
I envisaged the one below turning out like A is for Ox, with gleaming white letters. Instead of rolling over it, I screenprinted a brush painted circle (photographic screen) and the ink filled the letters. But there was a lovely subtle contrast and once I readjusted my results vs. my vision, I was very pleased with this.
