Cincinnati Portfolio IV

"Quantitative Menagerie"
Our 7 color screen print from Clay Street Press, part of the 4th edition of the Cincinnati Portfolio. This drawing is a proposal for a future sculpture, inspired by urban animals, Spring Grove Cemetery, and Dutch Still Life paintings. You know, just the usual stuff. 
(special thanks to Mark, Emily, and Casey at Clay Street for all your help and hard work)

Grand Theft

Kirchner's Lion made for Meissen, ca. 1732, part of Augustus The Strong's porcelain menagerie. Collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We love the way the face stretched, due to some of the processing,  making the lion look like it has melted a little. With this project I am more interested in the glitches of digital translation than the precision that we get from our regular process.  We have been traveling and visiting museums to snatch up some of our favorite historical works using photogrammetry, curating our own collection. Time to do what we do to this...

printmaking with professionals

Image of our print in progress at Clay Street Press. A six seven color silkscreen printed by REAL printmakers - the images are actually lining up which is super exciting. (don't get me wrong, I love the way we do it, but it is very nice to be working with professionals). This is print will be part of the Cincinnati Portfolio, a series Mark Patsfall and Clay Street Press put out every ten years.
