Notes from the Archive: In 2012, Albert Paley had the opportunity to visit Burning Bones Press in Texas for a print residency. Albert spent the week collaborating with the co-founders; Master Printer, Patrick Masterson, an instructor at the Glassell School and instructor in printmaking at the University of Houston, and Carlos Hernandez, a Houston-based serigraphy artist.
Paley applied his visual vocabulary by using pattern pieces from past projects, as well as utilizing materials at hand to craft new pattern pieces. The result of this exploration of the boundaries of the printmaking process was an unparalleled number (51) of large monoprints completed over the course of five marathon sessions. In 2015, he returned for a second residency.  He continued his work with mono prints, working with the co-founders to create additional levels of etching for even more depth and richness.  This example is the first from the 2015 series.
