letter fro m th e p u blish er From the first time I took a printmaking course, and discovered the pure unbridled joy of peeling back my paper from the plate as it emerged from the other side of a heavy metal roller, I was hooked. In a society that has become increasingly virtual, the experience was all about the visceral, the tangible, the tactile. From that moment on, I entered an amusement park of endless possibilties. I was also fortunate to study with some of the best printmakers in Provincetown and anywhere (a few of whom are represented in these pages.) A special thanks to Sidney Hurwitz and Bill Behnken (who yelled at me a lot for soaking paper with ink-stained hands), Kathi Smith, Vicky Tomayko and the two contributing printmakers with whom I have not yet studied and with whom I hope to share paper and play sometime soon—Sarah Riley and Maryalice Johnston.

Printmaking is an art form that emerged within the societies of Stone Age man. Engraved images on stones, bones, and cave walls served as a form of communication and storytelling. The Sumerians duplicated engraved designs 3,000 years ago, and the Chinese made print rubbings in the 2nd century AD. Later, in the late to middle of the eighth century, the Japanese used wood block rubbings of Buddhist charms. In Europe, printmaking emerged in textiles in the sixth century. The birth of paper technology in Asia transformed the art form and at the beginning of the 15th century, woodcut playing cards were created in Germany. Within a twenty year period, a more refined metal engraving printing became popular. Italy became the center of this movement by the 18th century as Franciso Goya and Canaletto developed groundbreaking techniques and practices. continued on page 92

Visible are the contours of Provincetown but also the colors and shapes of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. After formal training in sculpture I began to feel a need for color. I paint as I sculpted, building up the surface with layers of paint, giving me the same feeling I get building with clay or plaster, but adding the dimension of color. The use of houses and landscapes allows experimentation with contrasting colors and planes of light.

special feature : printmaking

by sarah riley

I N TAG L I O (from the italian meaning 'to cut into') is a printmaking method in which lines and textures are cut into a plate or matrix. These impressions hold the ink which is then transferred via a press to paper. The plate is traditionally copper or zinc, though even cardboard can be used in certain processes like collagraph or drypoint. Processes normally included under the term intaglio are etching, engraving, drypoint, aquatint, mezzotint and collagraph. The process of printing images from lines incised into metal was probably developed first by jewelers to keep records of their engraved designs. By the first half of the 15th century German artists were making multiple prints from intaglio plates. Intaglio printmaking was well developed in Italy during the Renaissance. The ability to make multiple prints from one sturdy metal plate allowed for the wide dissemination of the latest Renaissance masterworks by painters such as Raphael to many people including the painters of majolica. Albrecht Dürer’s famous engraving ‘Knight, Death and the Devil’ was made in 1513. Francisco Goya’s disturbing, bitter and violent series of etchings and aquatints known as ‘the Disasters of War’ were made between 1812 and 1815 but were not published (for apparent reasons) until well after his death. Kathe Kollwitz’s ‘Woman 50 |

Albrecht Dürer, Knight, Death and the Devil, copper engraving, 1513

with Dead Child,’ an etching from 1903, evokes such heart-rending pain that it is difficult to look at for long. The expressive nature of the medium is what draws artists to it. The subtle greys and rich blacks that are pressed into and actually onto the paper’s raised surface are unequalled in other mediums. The rich blacks of incised and etched lines are what drew me to intaglio. More recently I have combined those lines with collagraphy. In Alchemy I the figure has been printed from a traditional drypoint incised into Plexiglas using a metal stylus. Black etching inks were pushed into the scratched lines and the excess ink was wiped from the

non-imaged parts of the plate surface by hand. The plate was then pressed onto damp paper as it was pulled through the etching press. The color portions of the image were inked in the intaglio manner but then also rolled with ink in the manner of relief printing. Inks of varying viscosities were used (viscosity printing technique) before this first layer was printed. This non-traditional part of the print was printed from cardboard plates which were worked with various acrylic gels and sealed also using acrylic before inking and printing.

MONOTYPE monotype is perhaps the simplest form of printmaking. It involves the transfer of fresh ink from plate to paper to create one (mono) print (type). Because these prints are unique rather than multiples they are closer in method to drawing and painting than any other printmaking method. In the mid-seventeenth century Rembrandt van Rijn in Amsterdam and Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione in Genoa began to experiment with printing ink on copper plates, using brushes, and other tools to create textures and continuous tone. The modern interest in monotype was in part inspired by an exhibition in 1980 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York entitled The Painterly Print. It featured the rarely viewed monotypes of 42 artists from the Seventeenth to the Twentieth Centuries, including Edgar Degas who used dark-field monotypes, (the plate is rolled solid with black ink and the light tones are subtracted with rags and brushes) as underlying structures for many of his pastels, and Michael Mazur the painter, printmaker, and teacher who is responsible for much of the current interest in monotype in Provincetown. A monotype is a unique print made by drawing or painting with ink on a smooth plate of copper, zinc or acrylic. Oil or water-based ink can be rolled, brushed, rubbed with a rag, drawn 74 |

into with a stick, or manipulated in a wide variety of ways to create an image on the plate. The image is then transferred to a sheet of paper which is sometimes dampened to increase its sensitivity. Most often, a printing press is used to get a faithful impression. Most of the ink is removed during the first pressing, but often a “ghost� image remains which can be printed as it is, or reworked and then printed. This later approach allows the artist the opportunity to develop a series of related works in a relatively short time. In the past, the terms monotype and monoprint were used interchangeably, but now, the monotype refers only to works from smooth plates. Monoprint refers to a unique print pulled from a plate which has some reproducible features, such as a plate with an etched or drypointed line. Variations are endless but the permanent features of the plate remain from one image to the next.

The thing I most love about monotype and monoprint is the exploration that accompanies the creation of each new and unique print. Though the process involves a press, the results are not a reproduction, but an original image on paper. Working on the plate with rollers, brayers, brushes, rags and solvents in a series of additions and subtractions is incredibly fluid and flexible. The unexpected results from overlapping and layering images, and the inherent reversal of the image in printing, make each impression a fresh and surprising event. The fact that a “ghost� remains on the plate allows me to begin the next image with immediacy. It is possible to work all day without ever having to clean my plate. The variations and possibilities are endless.

RELIEF PRINTING a relief print is an image created by a printmaking process where protruding surface faces of the matrix (printing plate or block) are inked and recessed areas are ink free. The relief family of techniques includes woodcut, metalcut, wood engraving, relief etching linocut and collography. (from wikipedia) The Provincetown Print, a.k.a. the white-line woodblock print, is a single block color woodcut printmaking process that originated here in Provincetown in 1915. Unlike traditional Japanese or German color woodblock printing processes which employ one block per color, the white-line print uses a single block of wood to make a color print, a remarkable concept in printmaking’s history. The method effectively marries the disciplines of painting and printmaking resulting in unique and original prints pulled from a single matrix. Following the outbreak of WWI in Europe many American artists returned to the United States and many found their way to the shores of Provincetown, a burgeoning artists’ colony, fishing village and safe haven. Accomplished printmakers Ethel Mars, Maud Squire, Mildred McMillen, Ada Gilmore, Juliette Nichols and Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt made up the group of original six artists who became known as the Provincetown Printmakers. They lived and worked around the juncture of Commercial and Bangs Streets, where the Provincetown Art Association and Museum sits today.

the white-line print by kathryn lee smith

Nordfeldt came up with the idea of putting all of the colors on one block of wood. (Although Ethel Mars two block method which she learned while studying in Paris was a precursor to this). According to Ada Gilmore: (Nordfledt) soon became impatient with the mechanical labor of cutting so many blocks of wood (one for each color) before he could express his idea; one day he surprised the others by exhibiting one block, with his complete design on that, instead of parts of it being cut on five or six blocks. He had cut a groove in the wood to separate each color, and, in printing this left a white line which emphasized the design. With his invention he had produced a more beautiful picture and eliminated much work. By 1918 Provincetown had become a known artists’ community, and with the influx of many Blanche Lazzell, Marigolds, color white line wood block print, 15" x 13", 1938, Extended loan from Hilary and Sidney Bamford, 2003. courtesy of PAAM

new artists, the white-line method spread rapidly as artists from other disciplines, as well as printmakers, rushed to try the new technique. Oliver Chaffee, a well known Provincetown painter, learned the technique from Ada Gilmore (his wife) and subsequently taught it to Blanche Lazzell who became the major contributor to the genre, with a white-line printmaking career spanning many decades. Lazzell’s contribution, both as a teacher of the method and her prolific amount of work, remains to this day one of the highest standards the genre has ever produced. In 1918 the Provincetown Printers, the first society devoted exclusively to woodblock prints, was formed. In 1949 painter Ferol Sibley Warthen, a student of Lazzell’s, learned how to make these prints, which she was to produce for the next 47 years, and for which she became well-known. Warthen’s work rested upon geometric cubism that was different from Lazzell’s, with extremely complex imagery and translucent washes. I learned the method from my grandmother, Ferol Sibley Warthen, when I was four years old, and, after formal schooling, continue to make it my life’s work. A seemingly simple process, it marries my first love of painting with that of printmaking. As an artist one combines the thought processes of the two disciplines. After thirty years it becomes second nature to think in this way. I enjoy the possibilities of evoking different moods from different color selections and combinations from one unique print to another

in the same edition. The expansive and immediate thought processes of painting are combined with the long-term discipline of printmaking, resulting in a print that could not be achieved in any other way. I love making these prints. I love that the woodcut is a part of world-history which began with the Chinese, was so beautifully realized by the Japanese, and in our American fashion, and specifically our Provincetown heritage, has become our own contemporary contribution to an historical vision spanning time and place. I feel very fortunate to have this legacy from the early Provincetown Printmakers, Lazzell, and Warthen, and to be able to continue in this tradition in these contemporary times, speaking the language of this century within a tradition that was born almost 100 years ago in this location.

Kathryn Smith is teaching two workshops on The White Line Print at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum on July 23-26 and September 17-20. Work can be viewed at Gallery Ehva in Provincetown.

SCREEN PRINTING screen printing is a printing technique that uses woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil, often cut from vellum or created directly onto the mesh with an impermeable liquid.

The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh to form a sharp-edged image onto a printing surface. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing. Screen printing is a form of stenciling that first appeared in a recognizable form in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD). It was largely introduced to Western Europe from Asia 84 |

sometime in the late 18th century, but did not gain large acceptance or use in Europe until silk mesh was more available for trade from the east. Credit is generally given to the artist Andy Warhol for popularizing screen printing identified as serigraphy, in the United States. Warhol is particularly identified with his 1962 depiction of actress Marilyn Monroe screen printed in garish colors. Many other artists—Rob Ryan, Blexbolex, Arthur Okamura, Robert Rauschenberg, Harry Gottlieb—have used screen printing as an expression of creativity and artistic vision. Since rudimentary screenprinting materials are so affordable and readily available, it has been used frequently in underground settings and subcultures, and the non-professional look of such DIY culture screenprints have become a significant cultural aesthetic seen on movie posters, record album covers, flyers, shirts, advertising, in artwork and elsewhere.

I first began experimenting with screen printing in 2010 when Master Printer Vicky Tomayko suggested that I make stencils from the “My Girls,� an installation of figures cut from old boxes, old wallpaper, and scrapes of spray-painted paper. Liking the idea, I began cutting the stencils from vellum and screening the figures onto velvet, plastic, newspaper palettes, paintings, just about anything in my studio that would accept the ink. I especially enjoyed using odd and/or forgotten materials or artworks as printing surfaces. I quickly became intrigued with the clarity of the printed figures, the way they interacted with the backgrounds of the printing surfaces, and the many ways I could layer the figures.

special feature : printmaking

continued from page 8 The 19th century witnessed many trial and error movements in printmaking, as the Japanese mastered woodcut prints. The best known American printmaker of the time, James Audubon, engaged in printmaking as a scientist rather than as an artist. As with all art movements, the 20th century burst open vibrant and experimental energy, and printmaking was no exception. Pablo Picasso, along with a large cadre of his modern contemporaries engaged in etchings, engravings, drypoints, woodcuts, lithographs and lino cuts. At this same time period, artists in the United States, including George Wesley Bellows, John Sloan and Reginald Marsh as well as Milton Avery and Edward Hopper, developed their techniques in lithograph, etching, and drypoint. The joy and intrigue of the process, along with many new methodologies, continue to be discovered and expanded upon as evidenced in the remarkable work being done today. A Brief History of Printmaking. World Printmakers. February 11, 2004. William Zorach, The Weirs, woodcut print, 11.5" x 8.5", 1917, Gift of Warren Cresswell, 1979. courtesy of PAAM

Prints and works on paper represent one of the best buying opportunities for both young and seasoned art collectors alike. Aside from Blanche Lazzell and a few of the master printmakers, works on paper have long been overlooked and are still undervalued. I am particularly intrigued with monoprints. Black and white woodcuts, linocuts, etchings and lithgraphs are particularly within the reach of everyone. Between the galleries, auctions and museum members’ shows, the possibilities are endless.
