Quiet Riot by Darcy Shilton
Inspired by the calm chaos that can take over the body and mind. The quote is from Nick Bryant Smith an Australian hip hop artist. His music spoke to me directly, capturing a mental state perfectly which I wanted to explore visually. The state I wanted to depict was one of conflict; an outward calm when internally the mind will not stop racing, unfocused and wild. The disconnect between body and mind.
The printing process was done at the Melbourne Museum of Printing under the watchful eye of the curator and founder who kindly allowed me to use the beautiful equipment. The print features a Linocut illustration with Ludlow set letterpress type.
