This work is a portfolio that came from a collaboration with Leon Loughridge of DC Art Press. After flying into Denver on the way to an earlier residency at the Ucross Foundation, I saw one of his books at the Denver Public Library’s Artist’s Book Collection. Not only was the work exquisite, but the book included a fine explanation of reduction woodcut printing.I met Leon in Denver after several attempts, returning through Denver from an artist’s residency at Jentel in Banner, Wyoming.
Leon publishes an annual portfolio of prints, print processes, and other work that includes an image by another artist. I am honored to have been 2010’s contributor to “Process: DC Print Folio.” For this publication which was entirely printed on the letterpress at DC Press in Denver, Colorado, I contributed an essay on the topic of process and a 5 inch x 7 inch multiple color print printed on Kitikata paper for the edition of 30 folios. My print was printed at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.
