Drawn to Print

Sam’s residency originally began with his reconsideration and potential reworking of a previous series of screen prints, but quickly turned experimental as he plied the tattooer’s needle for unique dry point effects in Plexiglas. From there Sam slid into a series of monotypes using a free play technique not dissimilar from frottage or grattage to yield a group of deeply suggestive and multifaceted portraits. Sam’s time at Gesamtkunst Werkshop was so focused and immersive that we were able to pull two separate shows from his body of work.
