The idea for these works came from seeing offset ghost images in ink on lithographic printmaking rollers after transferring the ink to deep etched plates for multiple color viscosity printing.
I called the prototype for this body of work, Holly Roller, a tongue-in-check title to imply the rigid rituals behind many printmaking processes. I simply attached an etching to a paper cylinder and the attached chrome painted wooden handles to create a facsimile print roller. This opened a door to explore print ideas in three dimensions and as small sculpture.
Recently, I am revisiting this idea and am working with balsa wood, 3-D printing and other materials to explore 3-D prints that compliment the House of Cards Suite.
