Second Prints

Most of these monoprints with xerox transfers are on two different kinds of Fabriano paper, one of which behaved in a very skinlike way when put through an etching press. Which makes me crazy with happiness... A couple have some pieces of collaged silk, from a shirt my sister gave me that I loved for a while. It turned from white to a magnificent deep ivory over time. A couple of these are on handmade paper. These prints were made in 1999 at the Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY. They borrow from my own poems. I don't have images from two other of these prints, which belong to Maryrose Larkin and Carole Cotten.

  2. Thanks, Rebecca! They turned out really subtle. Maryrose Larkin has one at her house, in case you ever visit her and want to see one of these pieces in the artflesh...
