Dancing, Digital and Screen Print
17 x 16

The print “Dancing” was first thought of as a ceramic wall piece and, since I also work with ceramic sculpture, it was created as such. Then, having recently becoming interested in digitally printed imagery, I carefully photographed the ceramic piece and had it printed digitally onto the papers that I usually use for screen printing and other printmaking methods. I did the layout for the digital part and participated in the actual printing. Once I had the digital prints I created a series of hand cut and drawn stencils and concluded the edition by hand printing (pulling the squeegee) a number of colors of lines, shapes, and shades as in my usual way of working in my studio.
