A New Print

I'm currently working on a print that I'm getting ready to send to the Global Print Exhibition in Portugal. The exhibition is in August, but the deadline for getting it to the museum is the end of April (get yer skates on, Hartigan!).

I'm working on something that's an extension of the Lucerne Project idea -- people I've never met in a place I've never been. In this case, I've been to Portugal, but not to the north where Douro is. Rambling a bit here, but the point is that I've decided to juxtapose images of luxury hotels in Douro, which is a touristy region of Portugal, with images from the anti-austerity demonstrations there last year.

Here are the first prints coming off the press, showing the interior of a hotel room, much altered via digital printing and xerox enlargement first:

Medium: paper-litho transfers. The overprints will be etchings.
