Prints

Transference

Prints from Steel plates and plywood. In this installation I used printmaking as a metaphor for our search for meaning in the universe. Prints, as possible answers to hypothetical questions; a call and response. Through a long process involving my car, I took 2 intaglio prints from each of the twelve steel plates (4x4 ft) that had been prepared with images of the constellations as part of a sculptural installation. It struck me as appropriate that the force used in intaglio printing, compression, was the conceptual beginning of that project. Of the two prints, I developed one further with multiple layers of relief printing and mixed-media. The first print spoke to the information gathered, and the second became how we interpret that knowledge.

Tire Prints

These prints run parallel to my tire sculptures. Through printing I am re-animating the tire, capturing an echo of it driving on the road leaving its imprint on the environment. I used two different printing methods, intaglio and relief. Intaglio by running the inked tire fragments through an etching press or running over them with a “steam-roller”. I did the 60-foot relief print manually.
