About the Work

From the Artist

I had been telling people I believed offset lithography could be elevated from its status as commercial reproduction only to the level of a fine art form. I was not alone, as many articles had been published saying the same thing for 20 years. Brandywine [Workshop and Archives, Philadelphia], however, was a pioneer in making fine art offset prints feasible and sustainable....

While I was working at Brandywine I met Alvin Loving and, as his rejects were being used to run my image for adjusting, one of his plates overlapped mine. We agreed to co-sign one of them, but we agreed only on one print and I gave it to him. I have none. From a snapshot I took I made an artist stamp.
