This piece was made working in collaboration with Wildwood Press in St. Louis.
Per his computer-made vector file design, metal stencils were made of his composed shapes. In the case of this piece, the full sheet of paper was inked black using a collagraphic plate, which gives the surface a rich, organically embossed texture.
A few days later, after the black had completely dried, the metal shapes were inked red and printed over the black. The red parts are shiny and the black more matte, as the oil-based ink from the red shapes doesn’t absorb into the paper.
With these pieces Paller is interested in the way forms relate to their neighboring forms. The interplay between positive and negative forms is particularly intriguing.
