Carlos Andrade’s monotypes are visually arresting and tactile, combining elements of printmaking and collage, and pushing the boundaries of both.  This is one of several large-scale monotypes Andrade made on his most recent visit to Manneken Press, early in 2015.  See all of the prints here.

New project with Richard Hull

By | Monotypes, Richard Hull | One Comment

Chicago artist Richard Hull was in the studio last week working on etchings and monotypes.  Hull utilized traditional intaglio techniques: line etching to create densely worked areas, aquatint to add fields of tone and burnishing the plate to bring some light back in.

Hull often makes crayon drawings on paper, so we tried a related technique for the monotypes: the artist used water-soluble crayons to make a drawing  on thin Sintra board which was then printed onto damp paper.  The results are spectacular!  Take a look at the finished prints on Richard Hull’s artist page.

Brian Cypher’s prints on view in Seattle

By | Brian Cypher | No Comments

Two of Brian Cypher’s etchings will be included in Out Of Sight, a survey of contemporary art in the Pacific Northwest.  The exhibition takes place at King Street Station, a 24,000 SF space close by the Seattle Art Fair, which will be happening concurrently.

Curated by Kirsten Anderson, Sharon Arnold, Greg Lundgren and Sierra Stinson, Out of Sight showcases over 80 emerging and mid-career artists, the largest survey of contemporary art happening in the region. Both in scale, proximity and premise, Out of Sight is a bold and audacious exhibit, designed to recognize the immense talent and creativity that the region harbors, and the under-recognized creative capital of the community.

Manneken Press published several etchings by Brian Cypher, a resident of the Pacific Northwest’s Skagit Valley, in 2014.
