Recommended by Rebecca (Gallery Manager):
Three Shadows by Glen Alps illustrates some of my favorite effects one can achieve with Collagraphs, a term the artist coined to describe a mixed media plate. The different heights of the elements give a sculptural feeling when printed. The ink has been lovingly rubbed into all the nooks and crannies and then removed sparingly to maintain the multi dimensionality during the ink transfer from plate to paper. The use of a simple, commercial, paint additive of ground walnut shells instead of carborundum to Elmers glue gives a solid, yet sumptuous, weight to the solid forms. This is an early collagraph from the late ‘50s and shows that his later works did not stray too far from the principals and richness of these early pieces. It is reassuring to see his works re-emerging from long held collections, giving us another chance to make their acquaintance."
