Donald kindly provided the following statement about this excellent new series of unique prints:
These recent prints are the result of experimentation carried out over the last two years with processes that have been dubbed low tech methods. The layers have been printed from found plywood, re-purposed Plexiglas plates, and wood reliefs drawn with shop tools like the Dremmel engraver, ball grinders, and the plunge router. I became particularly interested in reflective mylar collographs layered to resemble open bitten etching plates, and enjoy the painterly effects rendered from tarlatan wiping and the transparency of the printed surface.
Beyond these processes, I think of these works as a kind of cumulative interior architecture. To me they suggest memory, travel, and the passage of time; fragility, brokenness, and the will to order things—to make meaning out of experience.
We are happy to show you the rest of the group. Call to visit 215-732-7787 or email info@DolanMaxwell.com for images.
