Under Construction Print
A little while ago I was asked to contribute a self-portrait screenprint for a show at Cyto gallery in Chicago. Scott O'Brien , the director, was interested in having artists who make a lot of posters give a stab at self-portraiture in the medium. The show opens on Friday and includes work from : Sasha Barr, Casey Burns, Mat Daly, Dan Grzeca, Matt Hart, Kathleen Judge, Gina Kelly, Ron Liberti, Dan MacAdam, Michael Nielson, Simona Prives, Lil Tuffy .
The title of my print is "Under Construction", it is 19 x 25 , edition of 95, 5 colors. I'm really happy with the way this turned out- there are some really nice subtleties in the metallic split fountain layer that make the image really pop nicely in person. Unfortunately my work doesn't photograph that well, so its best to come out and see it in person! The opening is this Friday, from 5-10 pm. Click on the gallery link for more info.
