The new issue of Art New England (March/April, 2012) includes an article by John Pyper talking with contemporary artists who incorporate printmaking practices into their work. Check it out on (New England) newsstands now.
Over the past few years my work has included appropriated printed imagery culled from coffee table books depicting major American cites. For a while now I’ve been searching for an appropriate method to create one of these images in multiple. Offset fit the bill. This isn’t a digital print or a giclee; this isn’t a reproduction of an existing work – this process is as close to the method I use to create one-of-a-kind works as it gets.
You can view in-progress images, learn more about the process and order the print on my website.
OOOPS – Totally fell for this. Looks like the bellow listed Biennial site is a fake. Sotheby’s is still listed as a sponsorer at the bottom of the official Whitney website. So much for that. Whoever wrote the copy on the fake site did a great job.
“However, the Whitney also recognizes that some donors and sponsors may seek to use their partnership with the Museum to whitewash their image and to hide the social costs of unchecked capital accumulation behind a façade of charity. These sponsors seek to capitalize on the creativity, intelligence, and culture brought into the world by contemporary artists even as the sponsors make that world unlivable.”
More on the 2012 Biennial site.
Concurrently (or perhaps as a precursor) – “Arts and Labor group of the Occupy Wall Street movement has published a letter demanding an end to the biannual survey show in 2014″ according to Art Info – with one of the key concerns being the Sotheby’s lockout of union art handlers.

Some images from creating and printing this etching I made while I was visiting the University of Kansas the week before Thanksgiving. We ended up with an edition of 25 and a few Artists’ Proofs. This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Michael Krueger and the students and faculty of the Department of Printmaking – so again a HUGE thanks to them.
Click on images for larger versions – and a lot more after the break.
