Every monday night is mono printmaking at Garance’s magical studio in New Suffolk, NY.

You squeeze tubes of printing inks on palettes, roll, paint, collage onto a printing surface,

take your piece and walk carefully to not tread on the parrot that patrols the floor space,

blockhouse

And give the Printer (Garance) your work. She will allign your piece on her press, measuring under her breath in Swiss-German, and through the heavy metal roller it goes.

What comes out on the other side is: a surprise, each time.

Danke, Garance!

    Very elegant portrayal of that paralyzed agressivity, bunkers once radiated. The intimidating effect of open spaces. Scanners of customs authorities might be the appropriate symbol of war soon.

    Love these images, and your text!

    Am sharing this post with an artist friend who is learning printmaking and bought a small press from England for her studio (in Maine). Sounds mighty complicated.

    There’s nothing like printing! I’ve only had the pleasure a few times, but it’s always so exciting. I like what you’re doing, and the studio experience sounds fantastic!
