Published on the occasion of the exhibition at MCA DENVER, the book includes eighty-two prints by ten artists who have created works on paper with Master Printer Bud Shark over thirty-three years.
Shark’s Ink is one of only a handful of publishers where the Director and Master printer is the same person. On the spot decisions are made by Master printer/Director Bud Shark and the artists during every aspect of the collaborative printmaking process- from how a plate can be made to the appropriate paper to be used for a particular image.
Techniques used in the studio have included lithography; monotype- using watercolor, oil pastels and other materials; metal leaf, chine collé, embossing and collage, as well as innumerable innovations for cutting and printing woodblocks and other relief prints; and the engineering and construction of three-dimensional lithographs.
