“Thanks for hanging my prints up like laundry.”
Raoul Middleman’s (self-portrait) lithography plate from 1985. He brought this over to the shop the other day and asked if it can still be printed. Hell yeah it can. The cool thing about this, for me, is that the person/teacher who turned me onto printmaking, John Sparks, processed this plate in 1985, but never editioned it. It was also the year I started art school, and fell in love with printmaking. John’s dead now. I’ll finish what he started. If I don’t die first, or second. Something like that.
1980’s steel toe 20 eyelet Docs. Handcrafted in the original factory in Wollaston, Northamptonshire, England.
Bohl’s paper, measured, torn, and packed by him. Now we print. Well…next week… then we print. Show you all the image soon.
All the places where paper towels live in my shop.
Rei in the shop!
Ariane turned me onto this. The Ault & Wiborg Company, a manufacturer of printing inks and dry color dyes and pigments, was established in 1878 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
