Photo Polymer Gravure Prints

From a photo shot in the East Bay in 2016, at the Black Diamond Mines Regional Park, I created a polymer plate in a recent course taken at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, taught by Kazuko Watanabe.  I then used that one image to create a number of prints on Fine Art Paper (Arches and Fabriano).   Most of my efforts used the process of Chine Colle (adhering pre printed Kozo and other Japanese papers with Nori paste, by placing them on top of an inked plate, then adding damp paper and running it all through a press)  In all of the images above, except for the final image, I've digitally added a mat board.

Grease Stains and Other Delights - new video

What to do with photographs of grease stains, crushed apricots, running water by the sidewalk curb, and bicycle tracks on asphalt?  Make a little video with an original soundtrack!  Some of the music played on my Yamaha MX88 is part of Handel's Gavotte and Gigue from G. Henle Verlag Urtext Piano Suites and Piano Pieces, London 1733.
