silk collagraph monoprint with chine collé on paper , 20 x 28 in. (50.8 x 71.1 cm)

In 1989, Emily Mason began working with master printmaker Lisa Mackie. Through painting with acrylic on a plate covered with silk, Mason could experiment with layering and gesture. Mason and Mackie also created unique chine collé prints using handmade papers using a variety of colors and thicknesses. Oftentimes the paper would be employed as the main form or gesture, or at times would be printed over with a silk collagraph.
