A Map of Some Sort
A Map of Some Sort 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.
A Map of Some Sort is suggestive wordplay using phrases and words that might imply other meanings, particularly as regards to a physical presence. Pure, epic nonsense, of course.
This silkscreen was completed at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. It is a 4-color serigraph. The colors are black, blue, a yellow/tan and green. 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.
A Map of Some Sort won a Merit Award at the Minnesota State Fair Art Exhibition in 2011 and has also been in a number of exhibitions including Minnesota Funk at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota, Stop the Presses: Graphic Art in a New Light at theUniversity of St. Thomas and Minnesota Surrealists, a two-person exhibition at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
It is currently featured in an online exhibition for the First Unitarian Society’s “Art in the Gallery” program at www.fusgallery.org.
