In The Works
24x36in; street art, photography, digital deconstruction, multiple-pass hand-fed archival pigment print
I've been experimenting with a new process which combines photographing raw elements and hand-fed digital printing with multiple passes. I am in essence revisiting my time doing lithography where each color was laid down on a large piece of limestone and applied individually and artwork was created one color at a time. Only in this case, my source photograph is digitally sampled and dissected into eight layers. Each layer is then printed onto a single piece of hand fed and registered cotton rag paper through an archival printer - eight times. It is a time consuming process, but each print is a unique result and truly blurs the line between photography, painting and printing, and of course, digital and traditional media.
