Having worked in sculpture over many years, I’ve on occasion delved into making prints as I’ve done for the last two years, using a printing-press to create one-of-a-kind prints. They avoid becoming editions of any length.
I have enjoyed and been challenged by how printmaking allows a dialog among the materials, the hardware, and the practitioner. As with sculpture practice, the artist works in the presence of often intractable materials, their amounts and weights, tactility, heuristic decision-making, and even the ambient air.
Altogether, the artist works with both body and mind, with patience and forgiveness, and the embrace of the love of surprise. In the process I learn about myself, my dreams and loves and I hope that the viewer might find something absorbing and enveloping, as well.
