Erika Lizee recently completed an 8’ x 13’ x 2′ installation for the “High Priestess” exhibit at ArtShare LA, titled “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine.” In this piece, Lizee is contemplating the idea of representing existence as a single point. If that point expands equally in all directions a circle is created. Move to any point on that circle’s circumference and create another circle of equal diameter. The overlapping of these circles creates the form the vesica piscis. “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine” is an installation that uses the upright vesica piscis as a symbol that connects with the Great Mother. From two, come many. This form represents the portal of creation, both in life and geometry.
When it comes to lettering, calligraphy, typography or typeface design, only a very few do it like Ricardo “Itsaliving” Gonzales does it. He recently had a chance to connect with the good people at Krink Markers in their headquarter studio in NYC for a little fun session with some of their finest tools.
Ricardo has humble beginnings studying at the Mohawk Collage in Canada and working for as a screen printer in Ottawa for a couple of years where he fell in love with the medium of calligraphy. That passion grew to something quite serious almost an obsession. On that got him to work with some of the most influential brands and businesses on the face of the earth.
