Re-Orient: Photo Tex Inkjet Art with Flair

Linda Guy is a fine artist who teaches screen printing, lithography and inkjet printing at Texas Christian University. One of her students was LexJet’s own Nolan Dowdy, who’s now Guy’s customer service specialist.

Guy mixes traditional and digital media in much of her work, particularly her recent series call Re-Orient. Guy describes herself as “a collagist and a design anthropologist, if there were such a profession.”

In her Artist’s Statement about Re-Orient she writes: “The conceptual direction that I take in Re-Orient is to combine an inclusive collection of various historical patterns with self-originated elements.” To do so, Guy combines Photo Tex from LexJet, a repositionable adhesive-backed fabric, with screen printed and photographically mounted design elements and drawings that float off the wall about an inch or so.

Guy says she was previously producing the image on an adhesive-backed vinyl but prefers the look and repositionability of the Photo Tex for this artistic application.

“I’m having lots of fun with Photo Tex. It’s enabled me to do some large-scale things and make it more of a wall installation than I was able to do before,” says Guy.

Re-Orient is being shown at the Ro2 Art gallery in Dallas through Oct 22.
