Evolutions

I  do like to share process photos, if only out of fascination with the way surface can change (physically and conceptually) as different processes are applied. Though I don’t believe it’s necessary to describe step-by-step production of work to access its conceptual core, it’s still fun to share studio shots (it’s the printmaker / demo lover in me).

Here, the plate gets inked. Chocolatey. I love that the newspaper says “dirty.” Hah!

After running it through the press, I pull the print off the three separate drypoint matrices. This piece was also an experiment in using Akua water-based intaglio inks, which are new to me. I’m used to the oil-based inks.

Now, through the magic of television–err, blogging–we suddenly have a finished piece. The drypoint has become part of a mixed media piece, which includes acrylic monotype and ink. The picture plane is almost grubby.
