AGITPROP. PARTIE TROIS. (Or How Things Evolve)

Adapted The United Faces of America to a single color image. Pulled some test prints on newsprint. Step #2: Experiment with hand tinting certain areas. Step #3: Print on Kraft paper.  Thank you, Compound Gallery for the Agitprop Residency Program and your astute feedback and support.

This exercise started as a multicolor image that we adapted to work for a 3-color image for screen printing to a single-color image (with some hand tinting) in the interest of time. Parameters set the tone, and it’d always fun to work with.

for a 3-color screenprint that I will be making 100 copies of as part of the Agitprop residency sponsored by the Compound Gallery.

The Compound Gallery is funding this Residency out of its own funding to help artist create art with traditional printmaking techniques (e.g., letterpress, silkscreen, etching, relief, photopolymer plates) and building a bridge between printmaking’s historic relationship to generating social/cultural/political awareness and contemporary social media/online forums. If you want to support what they do by either donating ink, paper, supplies, or monetary funds, you can do so by clicking HERE.  They are fiscally sponsored via Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
