Work in Progress for Kiki Smith

Work in progress for Kiki Smith
A sneak peek of our work-in-progress for Kiki Smith at P.R.I.N.T Press. This animation shows each plate of a CMYK separation printed in its respective color followed by the finished image. It's one of several photo intaglios that we are printing for her this summer.

This animation shows the same plates printed in succession to create the finished image. Plates are printed from lightest to darkest: yellow, magenta, cyan and key (black).

Thank you to Intern Jaime Durham

 Jaime Durham's test for Gamblin's Sepia relief ink
Interns play important roles at P.R.I.N.T Press; they support every collaboration, exhibition and project that we host. In this essay Jaime Durham (Intern and Printmaking BFA candidate) shares her thoughts about her second semester working at the press: 
"I cannot believe my year at P.R.I.N.T Press is already up. If it is possible, my second semester at P.R.I.N.T Press flew by even faster and was even busier than my first. Time flies when you’re having fun and my experience at P.R.I.N.T has been nothing less than an amazing and fun learning experience. . .

Thank you to Intern Leigh Garcia

Intern Leigh Garcia testing Gamblin inks at P.R.I.N.T Press
Leigh Garcia (Intern and Printmaking BFA candidate) shares her thoughts about her internship at the press:
"This past spring semester, I was granted the privilege to intern at the Printmaking Research Institute of North Texas (P.R.I.N.T Press). During that time, I not only learned about the function of a professional printmaking studio, but also the amount of work that goes into running a successful shop. . .
