Printmaking is a multifaceted art form that allows artists to create multiples in a variety of ways. Printing processes result in a graphic layer, when combined with paper made from materials of significance, can create a uniquely personal and socially relevant work of art.
Shown here are a few works that merge the content of the paper and the graphics of the print.
