Round 7

I have two prints in Kayo Gallery's seventh anniversary invitational, Round 7. The prints are relief with watercolor on found paper, and the rest of the show looks pretty amazing, too. Check it out if you're in Utah. It runs Feb. 18th through March 15th.

"He Never Came Back" IV


This is the final print in the series. Like III, this one had to be gutted and have its silhouette changed. I had to borrow it back from the gallery because I just wasn't happy with it being shown the way it was. This piece returns to Twentieth Gallery tomorrow.

Still searching for the best spot in my house to photograph work. This one is in the kitchen, the last ones were in the office.

Welded steel infrastructure. polyester stuffing, relief print on cotton flannel and found fabric.

LA Art Show 2011, and even more prints

In addition to screenprinting and collaborating with Linda Lyke, I also printed some mono/collagraph/relief prints on my own. I didn't prepare as much as I should have for these demos. I just grabbed a bunch of old plates and used those to generate the prints instead of making something new specifically for the event. I prefer my prints from the event last year to this one, but I did have more time then and much fewer people to talk to. Being chatty and friendly while working is so difficult.

This one is from an old collagraph plate with a chine colle. The image is from the collagraphe and it's just inked ala poupe.
