Half Paper 1997-2003

Half Papers 2000-2003 (New York)

The "Half Paper" series are large format silkscreen monoprints on B.F.K. Rives white paper, 24" x 42".

The work process is a fusion and an overlaying of images used from the printing of the works on Plexiglas series: "Mayan Diary". They are entitled "Garbage Prints", as I print them before the works on Plexiglas to check if registration and color are OK, without having any esthetics expectations for the results. This working process is freeing my mind from traditional esthetic frames and gives me a spontaneous access to the energy of the unconscious.
