New Research in Non-Toxic Printmaking
Currently I am researching new printmaking techniques utilizing progressive industry printing platforms (UV flatbed printers, lightjet technology and other non-toxic materials) in the hopes of cross platforming traditional anologue techniques with cutting edge non-toxic advancements. I have recently perfected the non-toxic approach of the photopolymer gravure process, both b/w and cmyk printing, with a digital negative/positive imaging system which can be utilized in contact printing and enlargements of various alternative photographic techniques. My research is now focused on advancing the photogravure process past the traditional method of gelatin tissue and technology to the UV print platform while still staying true to the copper plate. By doing this the artist and student will no longer be limited to the size of image based on the previous gelatin tissue method but instead can explore a fuller and more vibrant 4'x8' copper gravure image.
