Photogravure
Learn the art of photopolymer gravure printing in this one-day workshop! Using light-sensitive steel-backed Solarplates, participants will create 4 x 5 gravure etching prints from their photographs. This environmentally friendly process translates photographic detail into ink on paper with unparalleled beauty.

No prior experience with printmaking is required. All necessary aspects of printmaking will be discussed including choosing inks, papers, and wiping material. Wiping and inking techniques will be covered. Be prepared to marvel at the way your photograph is transformed through ink on paper!

The making of digital positives will be discussed, but for the workshop itself, please send one color or black and white image file (300 dpi at 10” on the long side) to be made into a digital positive prior to the workshop. An email with details will be provided once you are registered.

All materials for this workshop are included in the registration fee.

Here is a brief outline of the process that will be presented in this workshop:

  • Starting with your digital photograph, a 4 x 5 transparency positive will be made
  • The positive is then laid on top of the light sensitive polymer plate and exposed to UV light
  • Washing the plate in water etches the image onto the plate
  • Once hardened, the plate is hand inked using water-soluble intaglio inks
  • The inked plate is then run through an etching press onto dampened paper
  • You take home 3 photogravure prints of your image

About Karen Hymer
For the past five years Karen Hymer, an artist and educator based out of Silver City, New Mexico, has ventured into the world of printmaking – exploring imagery in the form of photopolymer gravures. Her current work explores the effects of time on the human body and various plant life. Hymer’s richly detailed photogravures emphasize the interplay of texture, pattern, light and shadow in muted earth tones. The decontextualized close-ups of the body and decaying plants reveal a poetic beauty in these often-over-looked subjects.

Palladium over Digital Pigment

Michael Puff presents a printing process combining a Cyan-Magenta-Yellow digital print on watercolor paper with the beautiful, warm tones of palladium for the Black layer. This wonderful process connects today’s digital, color imagery with the unique properties of the nineteenth-century palladium darkroom process.

In this workshop you will print using your color digital images, create and print color separations and digital negatives, and coat, expose, and develop the palladium over layer. You will print the CMY (cyan-yellow-magenta) portion of your images onto a watercolor paper, and then finish the Black layer using palladium in the darkroom with a K (black) separated digital negative.

By the end of the workshop you will have created several prints using this beautiful process.

Hand-Coloring Photographs with Kate Breakey

Registration for this class is now full. To be added to a waitlist, please email info@artintersection.com.

Hand-coloring is as old as photography itself. In the 19th century, color tinting was applied to early black-and-white prints to make them more closely resemble reality; it was the advent of color films in the 1950s that took photographic hand-coloring techniques into the realm of interpretive artistic expression. Applying color has become a way for photographers to alter their images so that they become something other, something that can be more compelling and absolutely unique.

This four-day workshop introduces you to the many materials and techniques of hand-coloring, inspiring you to experiment with your own creative process.  You start with a digitally output print and then apply a variety of oil paints, pigments, pencils, and inks or pastels in combination, to extend the photographic image and produce the effects you want. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Photography is a magical process, but the ‘hands on’ aspect of applying pigment is not only fun, it is meditation on the joy of ‘making’ something that comes from somewhere within.  

Lunch and materials are included in the registration fee for this workshop.


About Kate
Kate Breakey is internationally known for her large-scale, richly hand-colored photographs including her acclaimed series of luminous portraits of birds, flowers and animals in an ongoing series called Small Deaths published in 2001 by University of Texas Press with a foreword by noted art critic, A. D. Coleman. Since 1980 her work has appeared in more than 100 one-person exhibitions and in over 50 group exhibitions in the US, France, Japan, Australia, China, and New Zealand.

Her work is held in many public institutions including the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University in San Marcos, the Austin Museum of Art, the Australian National Gallery in Canberra and the Osaka Museum in Osaka, Japan.

Her collection of photograms, entitled Las Sombras / The shadows was published by University of Texas Press in October 2012.   This series is a continuation of her lifetime investigation of the natural world which in her own words is ‘brimming with fantastic mysterious beautiful things.’

A native of South Australia, Kate moved to Austin, Texas in 1988. She completed a Master of Fine Art degree at the University of Texas in 1991 where she also taught photography in the Department of Art and Art History until 1997.

Printing with Carbon

In October we hosted a Carbon Printing workshop led by Dennis L. Collins. Dennis was able to lead our participants through this tricky process from start to finish – sensitizing carbon tissues with potassium dichromate, exposing the tissue with a negative, transferring the exposed tissue to the support sheet, and developing the print. Our students got hands-on experience making prints, as well as lots of practice trouble-shooting, which will better prepare them for continuing this process on their own. Each student made beautiful prints, and all learned to find the beauty in mistakes!

Dennis demonstrates the process of sensitizing carbon tissues to light using potassium dichromate

As the carbon print “develops,” un-hardened carbon pigment floats away – leaving the image remaining!

Several participants experimented with salvaging the used carbon tissue, to interesting effects

The same print is shown here printed on white and black paper, creating a cool contrast. The image on the black paper is viewable only when held against light

Dennis discusses the participants’ final prints after two days of hard work
