Photopolymer intaglio etching
14" x 18"
"With this sensibility as my focal point, I've been using an iPhone as my primary acquisition device. The ease of "capture" lets me bricolage my memorialized images. I then transform them into "one at a time" photopolymer intaglio inked etchings that don't utilize altered-reality manipulations. And they can't be mechanically mass-produced with the stroke of a computer key. Blotted Copperplate paper is laid onto the etched plates after I have prepared, inked and positioned them onto a press that is pulled by hand.
Etchings have been created for centuries by the world’s greatest artists. The use of non-toxic photopolymer plates brings the intaglio tradition into the 21st Century."
