Continuum: a Yoffy Press Triptych
Abelardo Morell, Alyssa McDonald, Irina Rozovsky
Continuum is part of Yoffy Press' Triptych series and features Abelardo Morell, Irina Rozovsky and Alyssa McDonald. In each Triptych, three artists are given a word to inspire the creation of a small book of work. The books are sold as a set, inviting the viewer into the collaboration to make connections between the projects and the overarching theme.
Continuum examines the relationship between student and teacher and how that dynamic can shift, reverse and fuse over time.
