Topkapi Riff


Three linoleum block prints
Image size: 13" x 13" each


Three block prints respond to the geometry, infinity and movement found in the tile diagrams of a life-sized book entitled "The Topkapi Scroll" (Late 15th or early 16th century). The scroll is one of the few preserved examples revealing geometric design instructions and tile patterning in Islamic architecture. The prints were cut at a Soaring Gardens residency after a previous residency in Andalucía, Spain, at Fundación Valparaíso in 2009 with a visit to the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.
