Friend: Filo.


In an attempt not to waste any materials, I reused most of the newsprint I had lying around for test printings of the screen and created montages. The compositions are a nice break from the highly structured work of the main piece. I used various acrylic mediums to set the pieces of newsprint in place. The medium caused the newsprint to become semi-transparent and reminded me of Greek desserts made with filo dough, thus the name of this series

These are all fairly small pieces, mounted on board, ranging in size from approx 4 inches square to about 18" square .

Since the newsprint acted as test printings, a spectrum of resulting prints can be found. Some are absolutely perfect, some prints were basically made for blotting a too-wet screen.

Some small pieces, about actual size:
