Technical Demonstration: "Printerly Combinations"

Using an intaglio press I will show innovative ways to combine sintra plates and ink-jet prints to produce monoprints. My approach centers on ways of using the language of printmaking to make creative decisions while working at the press. In this demo I will produce a series of monoprints from combinations of common printing elements.
