Printing an Edition: “Nominal Chinati”

Printmaking

The last week I’ve been busy at work at the Bow & Arrow Press using our Charles Brand intaglio press to print an edition for inde | jacobs gallery in Marfa, TX. Some of my prints are listed here. The gallery is preparing to re-open after a long hiatus, and these prints will be available at the “soft opening” the day after Christmas.

The print, called “Nominal Chinati”, is an homage to three pieces, one by Judd and two by Flavin. It’s a shaped-plate relief print cut with a laser into 0.050″ aluminum, and rolled with Daniel Smith relief ink. There will be 45 members in the edition, and perhaps three Artist Proofs and one Press Proof.

Here’s a shot of the inking setup:

Here’s a photo which I’m rather proud of. My print, “15 Graphic Judds”, which you can see here all the way to the right, is on the wall at inde/jacobs gallery in Marfa, TX. Next to it are prints by Dan Flavin and Donald Judd. Pinch me!

This little tableau has been created for the upcoming Chinati Weekend in Marfa. Below is another image of the print. It’s an interpretation of Donald Judd’s conceptual sculpture piece “15 Untitled Works in Concrete”, which is installed at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, TX. Be sure to stop by and check it out. ; )
