"THE WHITE IS WHITE WHITE"
exhibition of embossments (prege / prege) on the paper by Angela Minkova in a gallery "Gallery"
November 27 - December 2017
White dry gauge (also called embossed printing) or blnd stamp is an ink-free graphics technology. To obtain the desired footprint, a pre-made clich? is used. Beforehand, I made the very low relief from the soft material. Then the clich? is processed, it is made a second cliche between the two pressed moistened paper to get the desired convex footprint. Depth of relief can vary, depending on the desired end effect and the force of applied pressure.
Achieving the desired effect took me about ten years of sample with gripping and hand-made presses in the years when all such materials were scarce and almost inaccessible. Finally, I found a two-ton old, long-haired German press owned by the UBF Fund. the distant 1994 a deaf worker has printed these reliefs prepared for my exhibition at the ATA - Ray exhibition, then.
Those that are now being brought to your attention in the GALLERY Gallery are the only remaining prints because the white and I have been grayed out, the press has long since been missing, and the UBA Artists Fund.
However, it has the gentle relief that is revealed to the viewer only by directed light. We hope to have a few more billions of years. So the white is white and white, as Gerdut Stein told about the rose. There is nothing more to say, as there is nothing to say on the white sheet. You can write something to him if you have anything to do. In either case, you are welcome.
