Saliva Lining

2021
Produced for Gallery TPW's Silver Editions

In Steven Beckly’s Saliva Lining, effervescent soap suds bubble against a prismatic backdrop, creating wet, filmy layers of circles within circles. Printed on glossy transparency, it reflects and refracts light, taking on the changing conditions of its immediate environment. Marking each image with his saliva, Beckly adds an intimate signature, leaving a genetic, ghostly trace unique to each edition.
