DESCRIPTION

listening to someone you don't know very well tell a long-winded story while smiling with your eyes at someone you love who gets it

Acrylic on canvas | 2019

For the first time, Ethan Caflisch decided to conceive of titles before creating the actual work - writing them on the back of the canvas and then using Morse code to represent them on the front. The ‘morse code’ series derives from the ‘i didn’t know you were back in town’ series, unconsciously creating a rhythmic pattern that reads like music or conversation through sequences of dots and dashes.

DIMENSIONS

48 x 36 inches

AUTHENTICATION

The work comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed by the Co-Founder of Tappan.

Caflisch's work explores the beauty of raw materials and is personified by bold color and organic forms.
