Jacob Horwood: Visual Elements That Shouldn’t Go Together

T- shirt Edition of 100

In many cases, during my practice as a screen printer, the biggest successes have come from moments when something happens compositionally that wasn’t intended. A reversed layer, test prints on unusual substrates, printing onto other prints, all have very beneficial results to assist towards seeing an image in a new way. For this edition, I began by individually hot water dying each shirt. This results in a material that is painted without form or specific direction. When my composed layers were then put onto the t-shirt, a divide was created, as well as a partnership, between the intentional and the fortuitous.

The t-shirts are available in eight colour variations and can be purchased for $25 each. For more information please contact mallory@yyzartistsoutlet.org.

Horwood is the administrator of Punchclock Printing and works as a specialty screen printer assisting other artists and designers interested in the full realization of their ideas.
