Man and Star
Created by Aaron T. Brown
Original hand-pulled print. Printed on Somerset paper, a cotton paper made in England. Printed with oil-based etching inks. This star is deeply embossed, uninked paper. Signed in lower right corner, numbered in lower left corner. This print is what the artist calls a varied color edition. He rolls the ink on the plate each time he pulls a print, with little regard to making it the same each time. In fact, he purposely lets the colors ramble and range as the mood strikes him. He rolls out many different colors on a glass table, and then he randomly rolls color atop color, mixing and blending them on the plate. Essentially, the resulting print is a one-of-a-kind piece, though the shapes remain the same from one print to the next. Limited edition of 200.
