Inspired by language as subject matter, this sculpture is covered intricately with words and their various meanings. The words serve as recognizable icons and enhance the image with texture. The artist was struck by how words hold different meanings depending on our experience and cultural background, and drew inspiration from his own Creole roots for this piece.
Jite works mainly in layered print making techniques, including monotype, collage and relief.
