Mixografía® print on handmade paper.
Three-dimensional print on handmade paper in close collaboration with the artist.
Signed, titled, and numbered at the margins.
This artwork is framed and wall-ready.

The Mixografia® printmaking technique is a unique fine art printing process that produces three-dimensional prints with elements of relief, texture, and very fine surface detail. The process begins when the artist creates a model or “maquette” out of any combination of materials from which the edition will be produced. A sequence of plates is then cast and molded from the maquette, resulting in a reverse three-dimensional copper printing plate.  The plate retains the shape and fine detail of the artist’s original concept. The printing inks are applied by hand on the plate by the Master Printers, and moist paper pulp, produced entirely in-house from pure cotton fibers, is laid over the inked plate. The paper and printing plate are then run through the press under extremely high pressure, forcing the moist paper into every crevice of the highly sensitive printing plate, registering every nuance on its surface, and transferring the ink to the paper.  Because the paper is still wet as it runs through the press, the ink is absorbed into the paper’s fibers, giving the prints extremely rich, saturated color and fresco-like qualities.  After the print has run through the press, it is pulled from the plate and set to dry.  Once the edition is complete, the artist numbered and signed each print.
