Scott Albrecht is a graphic design trained artist from Brooklyn. I just love his abstract typography work, especially the colorful pieces from the collection titled New Translations. The works are largely based in typography, meaning they contain words which are not clearly legible. At first you just think it is patterns, but then you realize you can see parts of words.
The specific woodworks are the result of an extensive process that starts with a hand-rendered drawing and requires hours of precision production work. Each piece is made up of dozens, sometimes hundreds of individual pieces that are cut, sanded, painted and re-assembled, often in varied depths.
Albrecht’s work in general incorporates elements of woodworking, hand-drawn typography, geometric collage, using vintage printed ephemera and found objects.
