DRYPOINT VINYL RECORD PRINTS

Various works created using old vinyl records as plates for drypoint engraving, done directly on the vinyl surface. Due to the fragile nature of drypoint-on-plastic editions are kept small (editions of 10 or less). The earliest here were printed on a proper etching press in Burgundy, France by master printers who work with the Centre national de l’estampe et de l’art imprimé (CNEAI), where the prints were made during a summer 2008 residency. Prints from NSCAD and Villa Arson were mostly pulled directly by me…  An ongoing series…
