Recently, I’ve been looking at photogravures I created in Nebraska during an artist residency and experimenting with discursive and non-discursive universes of imagery. When two systems of images collide (abstract, handmade and photographic, apparatus made) what is the result? Which becomes dominant?
I’ve been spending the last 4 weeks working on polymergravures–a less toxic way of using polyer-based printing plates to make rich and heavy intaglio images. Currently, I’m wrapping up a series of images of the Cedar-Riverside Plaza.
