“Printmaking Is…”

By December 16, 2020January 19th, 2021No Comments

In “Printmaking Is…” Manneken’s master printer Jonathan Higgins is shown working on a color aquatint while riffing extemporaneously about printmaking.

The video shows the printing sequence of Violets, a 2-plate color aquatint by Jill Moser. The print is part of Moser’s dazzling “Chroma Six” aquatint suite published by Manneken Press in 2019.

“Printmaking Is…” is the first in a series of short videos that we will present periodically on this site and on social media. A shout-out to Ruby Higgins for making “Printmaking Is…” (it never hurts to have a film student in the family!).

The “Chroma Six” suite can be viewed here. An online prospectus for the “Chroma Six” project can be viewed here.  There are still impressions available. Contact Manneken Press for pricing and details.
