LASANSKY, TOMAS – COLOR INTAGLIO (WORKING STATE)

Tomas Lasansky learned the skills needed to be a printmaker from his father Mauricio Lansky. I spend a week with Tomas at his Iowa, City studio and he demonstrated how he makes his prints. On this particular image, there is one plate which is copper for the face/background and a second plate for the beard. We added the color to the plate, carefully laid the plate on top of the damp paper and then rolled it through the press. It was fascinating to participate in the whole printing process and the final image which is beautiful in detail. Not all of the prints are the same which vary in Color and even background.
