|Matt signing his prints|
When I first met with Matt to talk about the possibilities of translating his work through print, I could see that painting film positives for screenprintnig would be a perfect compliment to his method of working. Matt hand painted individual color layers with black gesso on mylar, giving the printed versions a nice painterly less-than-perfect look that was really refreshing, compared to the other tightly registered work I had been working through.
Along with some additional wood type letterpress elements, the food and text themed suite turned out to be a coyly satiric and sentimental set of prints. It was a total joy to print.
The edition 15 can be purchased for an extremely reasonable price of $150 through CANAL!
