Exploring coded messaging recently - embedded secrets, piece of information. Attracted by simplicity of the visual and ‘sign’ language.

Today’s UE artist on Tumblr feature - Inga Eicaite aka Zoori_i
Please introduce yourself to the world of Tumblr!
My name is Inga.
So.. Why printmaking? What are some of the advantages of printmaking?
Printmaking has a great deep connection with my heritage. The process itself of sketching, making cliches and printing is close to my nature in a sense that every work takes time thinking how to do things right. I don’t like to be rushed, I create during the process. Advantages would depend on the technique, but mostly it’s an ability to reproduce same work over and over again until the cliche wears off.
What themes do you pursue?
Destruction - construction - reconstruction. Cosmos. These are the main themes that I been into lately. Bauhaus and Constructivism have been my two very important influences. The idea itself of destruction and not being able to put pieces together afterwards is fascinating. Object looses it’s original form, but it gains so much more when you start manipulating the endless possibilities.
How would you like improve in the future?
I have a vision of myself and it takes enormous time - energy - force combination to get there.
But I would like to express myself combining different mediums and exploring the simplicity behind the complexity more, work on way larger format - introduce light and shadows or even take it into 3d - making my work more ominous.
What do you like the most about sketchbooks?
Which artists would you like to be compared to? Maybe you already have been compared to some?
I had people telling me that some of my sketchbook pieces look El Lissitzky like and this is the best compliment ever so far.
Do you have any weird habits?
To walk out in the middle of the conversation.
