Attention drawers, photographers, painters, and printmakers. Have you ever consider reaching beyond a single medium? If so, this workshop is for you! In this class we will combine digital and intaglio printing processes, creating complex prints that meld new and old techniques. Students will begin by choosing a photographic image to print digitally, then you’ll create a response to the photograph utilizing one of the many intaglio techniques in our toolbox, keeping in mind the distinct tactile quality of the hand printing process. We will learn how the printing sequence affects the outcome of the final image, which when reversed can result in starkly different prints. We’ll use photography, drypoint, trace monoprint, paper lithography, and traditional monoprinting processes to generate a series of redacted prints, taking advantage of each media’s unique properties.
By mid-week we’ll develop a rhythm of printing digital images and creating intaglio layers in response.
Táňa is a master of manipulating materials. After years focused deeply in printmaking, deeply in photography, and deeply in installation, she has for the past several years been working across all these media. Her process begins with building large-scale collaged pieces, photographing them, and with modest manipulation, printing out smaller sections for reworking into a new series. She uses pretty much every print process WSW has to offer, but in this class it’s all about intaglio and digital printing combo.
