Forth Estate at The Print Center

IMG_5780Brooklyn-based Forth Estate has a pretty solid show up at The Print Center right now — make sure to catch it before it closes (May 24th). The work shown gives the viewer a sense of the wide range of materials and processes Forth Estate is willing to use when collaborating with artists: fabric, plexiglass, laser cut paper, various ink types, and even braille texture. Images below are just a teaser, it’s best to see the work in person!

Untitled-1Kate Sheperd, Glsas, 20 color screen print (with detail image on right). It’s not your eyes, it really is printed like that!IMG_5783

Eddie Martinez, Against The Wind, a suite of seven drypoints — here with hand-colored additions. Love ’em.


Sara Greenberger Rafferty, The News I, Screenprint and direct substrate printing on Plexiglass. Just a detail shot here. I’m pretty sure I saw Goldie Hawn and David Bowie in other parts of this piece.

IMG_5764Finally, I just had to put this image, despite all the reflections on the glass. I’m a sucker for seeing the process and development of a work of art and this piece, Today’s Gaze, by Joseph Hart just warms my print-nerd heart. Taken directly from the exhibition pamphlet, the printing of this image involved a “Four-plate, six color etching with aquatint, sugar lift, spit-bite, inkjet collage, 24K gold leaf collage and hand additions with graphite.” Whew!
