"Fine Print" showcases the work of Joe Chesla and Amy Firestone Rosen; two printmakers who create monoprints using very different techniques. Working with traditional methods, Rosen creates monoprints using waterless lithography and serigraphy. With a nod to Jim Dine’s robes, Rosen uses women’s vintage slips as the subject of her work. By contrast Joe Chesla creates process directed, "mineral" prints incorporating nontraditional techniques to impregnate fine printmaking paper with a recording of the corrosive process of metal. He takes this process one step further by adding dissolved salt to the mineral bath, which re-crystallizes on the paper.
