Neil Daigle-Orians, New Prints 2022/Winter Artist-in-Residence, joins us for a final interview to wrap up our New Prints Program. Following the death of their estranged father, Daigle-Orians utilizes loss and mourning as a starting point to examine the constuction of identity in their residency project: utan-sin-far. Remnants of their father and funerary rituals are woven with Daigle-Orians's understanding of their ethnic background to create an archive of their father's life and their own.
Stay connected with Daigle-Orians by following @neilmakesthings on Instagram, and continue learning about their residency project by watching the full interview on our YouTube channel.

New Prints artist Doan Truong explores the history of refugee crises across Asia in these four prints from the series “We Are Refugees.”
“We Are Refugees is a series of four #posters about four huge refugee crises in Asian history, from the past to recent years. Focusing on the image of children in the exodus, the series emphasizes their vulnerability during the challenging journeys, which they had no choice but to go through and leave everything behind,” said Truong.
Tomorrow is the last day to see “unfinished” in person. Don't miss it!

New Prints artist s alvarez uses technology to create an ongoing archive examining constructions of and commentary on #latine identity in this #twitter based installation, “de generacion.”
“de generacion is an installation comprised of a receipt #printer that archives the latine colonial project as it manifests on Twitter. The printer awakens at the times I tend to check Twitter, and prints out the latest tweet(s) within a wide search query that focuses on supposed latine consensus ("we as latinos/as/es/x," "latinidad," et cetera). The more I actively tweet, the more tweets the printer archives—the more the printer archives, the more latinidad is both reaffirmed as a social construct and disrobed as an ethnicity founded on racial eugenics. The process captured here is unending,” said alvarez.
See this GIF with the photos of the work taken on January 19, February 15, and today, March 19. The last photo shows the detail of the work where you can see the printed text. "unfinished" is closing in a week! Come see this work in action by Saturday, March 26.

On view at IPCNY's #NewPrintsInFocus, this #ArtistBook by Logan Larsen centers on the myth from The Iliad, in which the Greeks are about to succumb to the advancing Trojans. Watch this video to take a closer look at each page!
"The resulting artist book depicts by proxy the myth itself and serves as a contemporary variation on the love story and its poetic implications. The work spawns from the myth and alternates between clothing, skin, touch, farce, and returns to the central ideals of the myth, broadening one’s ability for a queered reading of the text, " said Larsen.
Happy Saturday! What can be more satisfying to watch—a gorgeous print revealed by the cutest printmaking assistant! Shoutout to artist Alexis Hugo Nutini for sharing this wonderful video and print. One of Nutini's prints is scaled up as a mural and on view at the Philadelphia International Airport between terminals E and F. Check it out if you will be departing or landing there!
Today, we are sharing some helpful #blockprinting tips from artist Kate Hamel Tucker. Check out this short clip and the details below.
Tip 1: Burn the edges of unmounted lino to prevent fraying/fuzzies
Tip 2: Lino scraps help prevent edge inking/marks when you are rolling ink
Tip 3: Quick and easy paper registration: trace your paper then trace your block in the middle of that line and you have an easy guide to help place your inked block and center your paper. (Note: this method isn’t exact enough for multiple registrations, but it’s great for one color)
Tip 4: Scrape your ink before trying to wipe it.
We hope these tips make your life easier. Happy printing!

Eduardo Fausti's work centers around his fascination with the night sky. In this series of mezzotints, he studies the granulated textures through images of heavenly bodies with starry dark skies as backgrounds.
By rendering these images in #mezzotint and devoid of color, Fausti gives them a quality different from a scientific inquiry, personalizing his emotional response to the subject and explore a more naked interpretation of universal beauty devoid of most cultural or historical conventions.
Are you also a fan of the night sky?
Eduardo Fausti (b. 1954, Argentina, lives and works in New York, NY and Orcas Island, WA). Europa, Ganymede, and Io, 2020. Mezzotint. Sheet: 15 1/4 x 14 inches. Printed and published by the artist. Edition: 10. Courtesy of and © 2021 the artist.
