Tamarind Research: False Transfer Method: Non-Printable & Non-Interfering Matrix-to-Matrix Transfers for Multi-Run Registration in Traditional Stone and Plate Lithography by Perry Obee
Perry Obee (Tamarind Apprentice Printer 2019-2020) researched false transfers, a transfer technique that allows a design from one matrix to be transferred to another as a non-grease receptive (ie non-printing) transfer. This gives the artist the ability to draw directly on top of a previous design while knowing exactly how the new layer will register.
Tamarind Research: Photoplate Lithography Additive Mark Making: An Alternative Approach by Mike Feijen
Mike Feijen (Tamarind Apprentice Printer, 2019-2020) chose to research the addition and deletion of drawing materials on photolithography plates post-processing. His research explores a process of transforming a plate into a shellac base, and uncovers some new procedures, and the ability to reuse the photo plate.
The black balloons and the somber white coat-clad doctors in the print make me think of the healthcare workers bearing the brunt of the COVID-19 crisis today. Without having yet consciously made this connection, I hung the piece in my office about a week before we began working remotely in observance of stay-at-home orders.
[Garo] and Ian hit it off immediately, they were chatting like old friends (common with Garo). Turns out, they are both from Indiana! Later that year, Ian and I had a chance to go see Garo’s show in LA, in a gallery not far from Ian’s house.” – Valpuri Remling
The significance of black balloons in this is not clear. They represent some sort of negation, an anti celebratory symbol. Like a bunch of little black holes, some sort of loss is being conveyed. The men who have gathered for the purpose of this image are doing so for a somber purpose.” – Ian Davis @ Tamarind Institute
This series builds on the data visualization pioneered by the social activist and educator W.E.B. Du Bois (1868-1963). At Tamarind, DuBois borrowed this method of representing complex data in visual form as a way to make sense of harrowing contemporary statistics.
With Luke DuBois the workshop expanded its reach to respond to the ideas of an artist who originally trained as a composer and software engineer.
“I’m a big fan of the strategic misuse of contemporary technology to make art, that can, in some way, interrogate that technology in turn.” —R. Luke DuBois
