“Fine Cord”, a new series of prints

March 9, 2010

These intaglio prints are made from multiple registrations of various zinc plates which I prepared using a soft ground technique. A fine nylon cord was used to make the marks in the soft ground prior to exposing each plate to acid. I created approximately 15 plates which I printed in different combinations, colors and orientations to generate a family of images, each image unique yet related to the next. Ghost images, offset marks and the rich layering of color impressions adds depth to these prints. the images are 9″ x9″ on a 19″x 15″ piece of Rives BFK paper.
