Partly due to Susan's delayed arrival to Oehme Graphics (thus having only seven days of printing time), Sue decided to revisit some unfinished oil monotypes in her flat files that Susan had printed in New York fifteen years ago with printer John Micoff. They were perfect starting points for Susan's collages; she would precisely poisiton the acetate images on top of the prints and then they were torn down to unique sizes, completely altering their original form. It was thrilling and satisfying to be able to use these images from the past, and to see the work come full circle as this is Sue and Susan's eleventh project together!
Susan would arrange and decide on her collage pieces at a nonstop rate, leaving Sue with stacks of prints on which to adhere acetate and tear down to size, and Julia hardly leaving her post at our finicky (digital) printer's side!
Stay tuned for updates from our next project with Jason Rohlf!
