Serigraph

3 Sheets Editions By Serio Press & Ryan McIntosh On Coventry Rag

This Too Shall Soon Pass is the inaugural print release for our new publishing program 3 Sheets Editions. With each project, we aim to invent new ideas by exploiting aspects unique to the printing process, as well as experimenting with new ways of creating prints. By having our entire print studio at their disposal to execute their projects, artists have the freedom to express their creativity.

McIntosh used some distinctive techniques for This Too Shall Soon Pass. By sprinkling powdered graphite directly on to the screen during printing, the graphite was integrated into the ink itself, creating in each print a unique texture and color where the graphite landed. He burnished each sheet onto the bottom of the screen, creating even more texture where the ink touches the paper.

The final result lends itself to the concept of his original text paintings, created by force-feeding a single sheet of paper dozens of times through a computer printer until the text gets printed so heavily that it becomes just a large black void. The added texture further obscures the text, creating a rough landscape for the words to reside. The text itself is derived from an old medieval proverb, basically meaning that both the best and worst of times will soon pass.

Ryan McIntosh is a Los Angeles based contemporary artist. He was recently spotlight featured in the January 2017 issue of American Art Collector magazine. He has had recent solo exhibition in 2015-16 at Stone Malone Gallery (LA), Gold Haus Gallery (LA) and included in group exhibitions at Planthouse Gallery (NYC) and Season Gallery (Seattle). He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA from University of Arizona.

MM is a world renowned fine art serigraph and digital printmaking studio that works with a wide range of artists to realize their vision in their prints.  The list of artists who've passed through their doors is long and storied but they're not ones to name drop so neither will we.

In their words: The ultimate beauty of the printmaking tradition is shown in its democratic nature. A fine-art print has the ability to reach a greater population of appreciators that may not be able afford original works, such as paintings. By providing our service the art community, we continue the great tradition of making accessible works of art for the public.

Right on.
