At Echo Press we were always open to explore alternative printing processes. Michael wished to produce a series of images based on environmental and nuclear disasters in the USSR. These images were produced with a collograph technique where acrylic medium that was mixed with different sized carborrudum grit was painted on the surface of Masonite board. The resulting plate was inked and wiped like an intaglio plate and printed in various colors. The gritty, dirty, and dark images produced with this method enhanced the artistâ€™s intent.
