From the MFA Show: "They've Already Left"

This piece involves literal printmaking the least of all the four in the show. There's black on black plastisol screenprinting of an image that most people can't see until it's pointed out. And then, beyond that, the pattern is repeated in each figure, but slightly modified, and the figures are dotted with clay elements that are reproductions of an original made from a mold. So, maybe I don't know if I care about strict boundaries around printmaking anymore the way I did when I was an undergrad and always so upset when people didn't understand or know about it.
