This silkscreen edition is based on Julia Chiang’s tondo painting Squeeze So Tight And Hold It made in 2021. The print is produced using 11 colors to capture the subtleties in the original painting, echoing its varied intricacies. The work recreates a spontaneity and looseness of poured paint along with the controlled attempts of making and remaking marks and shapes. It speaks to the artist’s preoccupation with cause and effect regarding forces of nature. Chiang’s working method can be meditative, emerging from a consideration of the body’s physical sense of self within and beyond. Her signature markings create a push and pull or rise and fall, analogous to the movements of our bodies, oceans, the earth and humanity at large.
