David Rich is an artist who has been painting and drawing for decades and, in preparation for a trip to New York, he had me print some cards.
I have known David for probably 20 years and his sensuous abstract paintings deserved a tasty treatment when it came to representing his large scale work in the small card format.
To that end, we chose a watercolor paper and then kept things fairly simple. The impression of the type sits in the impression of a discombobulated bar and adds yet another layer to the dimensionality of letterpress printing.
The idea of being able to do justice to David’s work on such a small graphic scale was a bit daunting at the onset but he was great to work with and we managed to bang out something that seems to have served him well.
Multi layered work for an artist of great complexity and yet concrete, as is necessary for a clean conveyance of information. Thanks David. Keep doing what you do.
