proofing & process #2

October 2nd, 2016

Just over a year ago I posted an image of a group of printed sheets showing how I approached making a proposal for the Print Club of Cleveland. My prints come together slowly and the process of deciding a presentation print happens slowly, too. My proposal was accepted and the work of printing the edition has begun.
First and second layers are underway. One printed from a collagraph plate, which in this case is acrylic medium poured onto a sheet of plexiglass. Ink (ochre) is rolled onto the surface and transferred onto kitakata as it rolls through a printing press. The second layer (blue) is a carved linoleum block–ink is rolled onto the surface and the paper printed under pressure as it rolls through the press. Here’s an image of the work now in production. Two sheets at each stage, aiming for consistency. Two more layers to go.
