Karoline Schleh

Schleh’s reversed handwriting developed from her training as a printmaker initially out of necessity. Schleh began writing backwards onto her copper etching plates in order for the words to print forwards in the final print. Eventually, the print plates were abandoned and the handwriting reversals began to stand on their own in her drawings and paintings. While the words can (for the most part) be deciphered in a mirror, it is not important to the final work to know what is written. The intention is to convey the reflective mindset that comes from writing, and how words, information, and styles are impermanent and shift through time.
