While looking through visual diaries from his time living in Los Angeles, Luke Chiswell discovered old working titles he’d written on Chateau Marmont letterhead. Recognizing that process is such a significant element of his work, Chiswell memorialized the notes, creating screen prints on paper and canvas.

Each note features text in Chiswell’s signature script, a form of abstract mark making that pushes the boundaries of language and legibility.
