2-color print of the world’s most famous plumber, hand cut from paper, meticulously aligned printing registration.
The print above, my favorite out of the bunch, is one-of-a-kind mess up. The brown pass didn’t make full contact, leaving a unique wood grain texture.
Most of the prints turned out as follows, with full and crisp ‘pixels’, though only a select few aligned so perfectly.
As I learned from a previous print, I had to try my hand at rotating the paper to see what happened. The answer is… Mario el Luchadores.
I’ve recently been infatuated with this idea of printing pixels. Bringing something so digital and temporary into an analog, tangible medium is very interesting. Depending on the size, proportions, and colors, the pixels instead become recognized as abstract sets of squares.
This print resonated with me and will become a point of influence for my final print series for our gallery show. Expect even more fresh cuts of pixels… some smaller, and some larger. Much larger.
If you haven’t been following along, the recent screen prints have been part of an explorative screen printing workshop with Iskra Print Collective.
