 J.L. Abraham, “More Than Wishes: Wordprints" — Gertrude Stein 

December 2012 to February 2013
J.L. Abraham is an Australian New Yorker, a writer and a teacher as well as a
print-maker. She has studied drawing and printmaking at the Art Students League,
and is a member of the League as well as of the Society of American Graphic Artists.
As a print maker she works primarily in etching, aquatint, and linocut. “More Than
Wishes” is a series of multicolored linocuts made over the past two years. The
verbal geometry of Gertrude Stein’s writings (produced by her repetition of words
and phrases) is the foundation of the visual geometry of these prints. The prints’
visual geometry, in turn, draws attention to Stein’s ambiguous, evocative, even
provocative questions and declarations.
