"The Mixografía technique is a unique fine art printing process that allows for the production of three-dimensional prints with texture and very fine surface detail. With this process, the artist creates a model or "maquette" with any solid material or combination of materials on which he or she incises, impresses, carves, collages or builds-up in relief the image to be reproduced. A sequence of copy plates is then molded, one from another, resulting in a copper printing plate in reverse. The edition is printed on moist handmade paper pulp after color is applied to the copper plate. The paper and printing plate are then forced through the press, simultaneously forming the dimensional character of the plate and transferring the color.
The Mixografia technique is a flexible medium that permits the artist to transfer characteristics of the painting, bas-relief or assemblage onto paper without completely abandoning the graphic feeling. These artworks directly represent the artist's original creation, maintaining the identifiable traits of the artist's work, the artist's gestural expressions and the nature of the materials used.
In the later part of October 2010, the artist approached the workshop with his ninth project idea from the past 20-years with his desire to imprint an all-white gas station drawn from his previous 1966 title, Standard Station, which was executed using silk-screens in red, blue and white and with variations following in 1969; Moca Standard, Cheese Mold Standard with Olive, and Double Standard.
Incorporating the technologies of the Mixografía process in generating his low-relief textured print, this work aims to redefine and strip bare any past recollection leaving the viewer struck by its ghost." (see the studio's website: http://www.mixografia.com/print.php)
