  • About the work

The litho begins with a blood red organic spill overlaid with two shapes in charcoal. Superimposed on the whole are printed thin black calligraphic drypoint lines that may suggest written musical notes. The work is playfully titled "lyrics of ogres." Ogres are monstrous hominid creatures in myth and folk stories that are predisposed to consume humans. A famous example of the Cyclops Polyphemus from Homer's The Odyssey. Simonin's intersects the title and forms of this print playfully as if imagining what the ogres might be moved to sing about.
