Solo Flight
intaglio print on Akatosashi paper, 19.5 in. x 32 in.

It is a magic moment, each time when the dampened paper is peeled off from the plate, revealing the transfered image from plate to paper. I love the surface of the copper plate, polished, worked, inked, and wiped. My technique of intaglio printing is tradtional, however the experience is more like painting than printing for me.

Her books have interesting elements of construction, questioning how a book operates, but more importantly and I think most expressively of Kumi is the intense quality of the prints. They are both an important aspect of her Japanese background, but they’re being done in a very modern American way.
