Publisher Spotlight: Mixographia

September 7 – October 13, 2007

Press Release

William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of contemporary prints published by Mixographia Workshop in Los Angeles, CA.  The exhibition includes works by John Baldessari, Donald Sultan, Ed Ruscha, Donald Lipski, Mimmo Paladino, Tom Wesselmann, Terry Winters, and Jorge Pardo.

Mixografia produces and publishes handmade paper prints, multiples and sculptures in all media that expand the language of traditional editions by allowing the artist greater choice. The Mixografia technique is a flexible medium that permits the artist to transfer characteristics of the painting, bas-relief or assemblage onto paper without completely abandoning the graphic feeling. These artworks directly represent the artist's original creation, maintaining the identifiable traits of the artist's work, the artist's gestural expressions and the nature of the materials used.
