Tide Change, 1987

monotype on paper, 22 x 30 in. (55.9 x 76.2 cm)

Emily Mason continued her experimental printmaking at the Garner Tullis Workshop in Santa Barbara, CA, in 1987. Instead of passing a print through a traditional roller press, Mason concentrated on their flatbed platen press wherein the image from the plate is impressed directly onto the paper. This allowed Mason to capture a range of marks and ink viscosities on plates, preserving the spontaneous, unplanned nature of her creative process.
