This is David Bessent, an artist living on Phoenix, AZ:
I made this portrait in a last minute flurry of activity as I tried to squeeze the last bit of useage out of the printshop as I could. Here's the David print on the screen, and two others in the background:

Here's a portrait of my friend, Jenny Cotterill. I found a cache of prints I never photographed from early this year while moving out of my studio, and this is one of them. I've been really enjoying playing with powdered graphite on the monoserigraphs. It holds the water differently than watercolor and can behave unpredictably.

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.
