Coming to you live today at the IFPDA in New York. Check out this episode to hear what's going on in New York for Print Week if you can't be here to see it in person. Today I go over the happenings yesterday like my talk with master printer Craig Zammiello of Two Palms. We discussed photogravure, his specialty, and I give some detail today on how I think I've been misrepresenting that technique by calling all kinds of other printed things by that name. In fact, there is one material that is hardly available today that makes the process of photogravure possible, and Craig tells us all about it.
I also get into the prints I've been seeing and some of my perspective on some prints that really have hit me. I'm exploring the publishers' booths at the fair each day to see who is making great new work, and trying to meet the people who facilitate that print work. Two artists I'm enjoying are Swoon and Mickalene Thomas, both of whom are printing with Tandem Press out of Madison, Wisconsin. Midwest in the house! I also love the woodcuts of Chitra Ganesh at Durham Press because they're simple, black and white, and carry a lot of power in the message behind the work.
Today at the fair Jeff Koons talks about the state of multiples in the art world, and I'll be making time to interview Karl LaRocca of Kayrock Screenprinting and Kathy Caraccio who runs K. Caraccio Printshop where she is master printer and has been collaborative printing for 40 years. After that Phil Sanders leads a discussion also about collaborative printing. It seems to be the theme of this type of event, so you'll be learning a lot about how artists and printers navigate working together. More to come so keep following The Print Cast to hear more about what's happening around the big apple this weekend.
