Candy County

Candy County is a hand-printed silkscreen. The image size is 9.75″ by 13″. The paper size is 12.75″ by 16.25″. The image is printed on Stonehenge, a cream colored paper that is archival. This image is available unframed and shrink wrapped or framed with an  archival mat that matches the paper and a brushed gold frame with UV filtering glass.

Candy County  is Candy Land’s alternative universe. It’s where Suckers are born, where you need to beware of Gummy Bears and avoid the Mallow March or stay out of the Pixie Sticks. You might feel some Sprinkles while out in the Candy Corn field but if you get a Candy Gram  you might get a slot on Sweet Talk Radio. You can walk along the beach on the Pop Rocks and look for Swedish Fish. If you get on the wrong side of the tracks you might meet some Goobers, Nerds or Runts, especially if you are hanging out in the Candy Bar.

This silkscreen was completed at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. It is printed in 7 tasty colors. The colors are black, blue, red, yellow, orange, green and pink, naturally. The initial layer, the black, is drawn with black ink on tracing vellum and then scanned into the computer where it is touched up. Each of the other layers is drawn on the computer using a mouse. The layers are printed on clear mylar and photo-shot onto prepared silkscreens. The colors are printed in order, light to dark, with the black layer printed last.  Hand-printed silkscreens are multiple originals. This lithograph has a limited edition of 24 with 3 Artist’s Proof. Each one is an original.

Candy County  has also been in a number of exhibitions including the Mitre Box Framing Window Gallery, Minnesota Funk at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota, Stop the Presses: Graphic Art in a New Light at the University of St. Thomas and Minnesota Surrealists, a two-person exhibition at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
