2021 Monotypes on the Blue Clerk (by Dionne Brand) 

A set of monotypes printed with Josephine Press, Santa Monica, in July 2021. Each print is made over a drawing with graphite and vintage Lettraset graphics. Each print evokes a line from Dionne Brand's The Blue Clerk: Ars Poetica in 59 Versos (2018). On a lonely wharf a clerk in an ink-blue coat inspects bales and bales of paper that hold a poet’s accumulated left-hand pages—the unwritten, the withheld, the unexpressed, the withdrawn, the restrained, the word-shard.
