Seth Apter designed Gridlock as part of his Matrix series. While the movies may be the first thing to come to mind, that is not where this title comes from. A matrix is typically a group of numbers that are displayed in a fixed number of rows and columns. The symbols and marks in all of the stencils in this collection are all laid out that way as well. More broadly, a matrix is an environment in which something develops. For sure that is exactly what happens when you take a stencil and get to creating. And finally, a matrix is a term often used in printmaking to represent the surface from which an image is taken. Again, it sounds like you can apply this to stencils too.
Gridlock is accompanied by Seth's Synapse, Grate Full, and Etched stencils. Each of these four stencils can be used in full as is or broken up in sections. The design of these stencils allow you to truly make them your own.
The design of Gridlock, the medium stencil at 6 x 6 inches, enables you to accomplish all the ideas referenced above - but on a smaller scale. It also calls out to be used as a non-traditional swatching stencil, wth different shades of mediums in each box and just enough room in between for a small, handwritten label. And how cool would it be to use the entire stencil and write a letter in each square, spelling out a phrase or personal message.
