Billy Morrow Jackson 1926 - 2006: Catalogue Raisonné Watercolors and Oils

The Siti Suite Series

Traditionally a color print has a separate block for each color but my reduction method is but one block, and I cut away the areas of color I want to remain and continue this process until the surface of the block is all gone.

With stable registration I can achieve as many colors and value changes as I want, in some cases, as many as fifty or more color runs. As the ink builds up on the rice paper a rich printed surface emerges giving not only color and value changes but an overall surface not unlike tapestry. All in all it is a most involved process which I find all consuming, creatively demanding and very challenging. No machinery is employed; every step is done by hand.
