This photo was taken at 5am yesterday morning, after a final nineteen-hour printing session in the Ilam Print Studio. It was the end of four days of lithography, where I was printing works for my exhibition opening at Chambers on Tuesday.
This is the same print studio where I did my MFA and where I spent h-o-u-r-s inking messy intaglio plates. I love it here; the student energy felt positive and a number of the faculty stopped by to say hi. It was also soo goood to feel all possessive and territorial of my old print studio once more, even just for a few days.
Sorry I didn’t visit anyone, but I’ll be back in Christchurch next week for the opening.
