I was asked by artist Rebecca Morales to help protect the life of some prints she was going to have made. Her project, in it's entirety will exist as a sculpture made up of smaller resin cast sculptures and bronze cast sculptures assembled on an illuminated table. The table will then be scattered with detailed lithographs of writings done by artists and friends of hers who are helping to inform the work of art. The lithographs were printed by George Page, at Versailles Press, in florescent colored inks. Florescents are characteristically very fugitive. To help retard their discoloring process, I screenprinted layers of transparent base, containing a UV absorber, over each sheet of super thin Gampi paper.
The result made for an even richer look for the flourescent inks and the Gampi became more satin to the touch. All 153 prints loked like individual treasured gems inscribed with insight. I am looking forward to seeing the project finalized.
