Printmaking: Aquatint, Drypoint, Etching, Ink, Paper on Paper, Other.
I employed three individual zinc plates to create a single image in this comical and documentary work. I accomplished this by executing three etched plates, which are placed together on the press bed. As in all of my etchings, several workings of each plate took place in combination with Nitric acid baths in combination with both hard and soft grounds. Each plate measured 4 inches high x 3inches wide, which makes the image slightly larger (as a result of the separating spaces) than 4 inches high by 9.5 inches wide. The Print size is 11 inches high by 15 inches wide, or 28cm by 31.10cm. This ETCHING (from my CAMDEN, NEW JERSE" series) includes the printmaking techniques of intaglio, drypoint, Chine collé, and aquatint Media included a dense black, oil-base etching ink (Charbonnel brand), RivesBFK white paper, and three colors of hand-dyed mulberry bark paper from Thailand. The colored papers were used in the Chine collé (Chinese paste) process, a method to incorporate color overlays onto the plate. The edition was created, printed manually, and published by the artist at The CENTER FOR WORKS ON PAPER at The Fleischer Art Memorial in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The work was adapted from my original drawings of a 1973 photograph I shot of a restaurant in Cherry Hill, NJ called THE HAWAIIAN COTTAGE, noted for its kitsch architecture and pineapple-shaped roof.
