a lithograph print from college
of my brother Jim and niece Ana
made using the same process as Samurai With Two Birds. I took all the plates from my senior year cut them into pieces, overlapped and arranged them into these mosaic like prints. on asia paper. I wanted to repurpose these narrative pieces into something more conceptual and abstract. I see them as a visual index of the pieces I made during that year.
monochromatic and two color versions.
this was made in one press by cutting out the plates of the samurai and the two bird, I placed them on top of the mezzotint plate of the background bamboo forest then I pressed it using much less pressure to compensate for the extra thickness of the stacked plates.
