The Fourth National Monotype/Monoprint Juried exhibition showcases various monoprint and monotype techniques used in contemporary printmaking.

Bisymmetric intaglio printing to bysymmetric collagraph printing

Koichi Yamamoto stopped by Honolulu Printmakers on Sunday, January 17th, 6-9pm for a free demo of his bisymmetric intaglio printing technique.

He stopped by my workplace at the University of Hawai`i at Manoa printmaking studio the next day to view my work and encouraged me to apply for the MFA program in University of Tennessee, Knoxville where he teaches. I agreed and was admitted, but that's another story.

We have been exchanging emails ever since regarding new works we are producing, one in particular was the extension of the bisymmetric intaglio printing process. I experimented after his departure from Honolulu and found out that collagraph works wonders with the bisymmetric process. Here are some examples of my experiments:-

Since then, Charles Cohan, professor of printmaking at the University of Hawai`i at Manoa and Koichi Yamamoto from University of Tennessee at Knoxville have incorporated the bisymmetric collagraph printing to their class projects.
