Renee Petropoulos: 2013-14 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

Project Dates Fall 2013 to Winter 2014

In the fall of 2013 I received a Faculty Development Grant in support of a print project that I produced with Francesco Siquieros and El Nopal Press.  We produced first a lithographic edition of 16 prints.  Each print includes all of the plates that were made for the project and various stencils also produced for the project. Each print reflects a different sequencing of the plates, stencils and colors, remarking on the process by which they were made.  The edition is entitled From Mexico to the United States.

A companion work also in an edition of 16 included the printer Brienne Arrington (Otis Alum) and her skills as an ink jet printer.  This work, entitled, From the United States to Mexico, incorporates both lithography and ink jet photography.
