Description

Zirker said of his experimental printmaking technique: "...when acrylics are painted on certain slick, non-absorbent surfaces, they may easily be peeled off by hand, retaining the integrity of the paint film. What was not known (or not tried) was the potential for incorporating image-making in the use of acrylics this way. Futher, aside from the advantage of making monotypes, monoprints, editionable intaglio prints, collages and 3-dimensional prints without the use of presses, this method allows for the inclusion of many other media. Because of their bonding qualities, acrylic pigments and gels allow for the casting of imagery rendered with almost all other media including watercolors, inks, pastels, charcoal, graphite -- the list goes on."
