From the Artist:
This print titled "The Inevitable Departure" grows out of a video graphic and computer graphic slide piece that was part of a solo exhibition the Philadelphia Print Center in the fall of 1996. That show titled, "Borderland," and this print deal with my mourning the death of my mother, Mary Morse Coleman, who died in September 1995. The image in the print is taken from a videotape made by my partner, Alan Powell, on a walk that I took with my mother some time ago. By still framing the videotape I put the series of images in into a computer — totally removed the background electronically — composited the 'walk cycle' and repainted a background/foreground. The image was designed to be printed from an RGB file to a CMYK file via an inlc jet printer. In a creative collaboration with KD Graphics the color separations were adjusted and finally printed on polyester film using a large format ink jet printer. These became the stencil from which my plates were made.
