Working in the wet studio with Artistic Director Paul Wong, John Beech created a “printing plate” from rubber car mats. Sheets of handmade paper were formed from a thin layer of linen atop a layer of thicker cotton. The plates were then inked and “printed” during the papermaking process leaving an embossing effect on the wet pulp. The resulting work incorporates Beech’s formally abstract aesthetic and elevated use of everyday ephemera into the hand papermaking process to create an intriguing edition of 20 that recalls a Russian Suprematist canvas.
