Digital Printmaking

My digital printmaking evolved from that necessary Photoshop work in pursuit of a screenprint transparency or photo intaglio separations. I had always used the photos and imagery as a component in these long processes but at some point the aesthetic of the image itself became more important, and the mystique of the labor of process less so. As a printmaker who has a traditional background in mezzotints, etchings, and drypoints, digital print was harder to accept. One only has to look at the work of Ken Hale, or Andy Polk to realize the beauty and sophistication possible.
