Guttenberg Arts, 11-2015

11-14-2015    I went to Guttenberg Arts to work with Christina Pumo on some photo polymer plates. One image was an old one from grad school (done around 1974) that I never made into a print and the other was a photo I took of Titanus giganteus. Many thanks to Christina for her expert technical assistance. Also thanks to Bob Natalini whose magnificent beetle I photographed about 10 years ago.

  I made a transparency of this image in 1974! I was in grad school at the time. Later I put it away and never made a print from it. I came across it in my flat files around the same time I was planning on working with photo polymer plates.

  I worked a lot with insects making photographs, drawings and prints. This was a photo made in 2004 of Titanus giganteus, a large and beautiful beetle that was then in Bob Natalini's collection.

  Christina Pumo offered to help me with photo polymer plates. Here she's showing me how to make test plates.
