More Collage--Alan Shields at The Drawing Room in East Hampton


Caught The Drawing Room's exhibit "Inventive Editions" of Alan Shields' prints. His work encompassed all types of printmaking from screenprinting to etching to lithography to woodcut and more, and he created his own formula for handmade paper. Pictured here--"Cocles"--the square standing in a wood frame--is a network of grids with screenprinting, flocking and collage. "Alice in Grayland" is serigraph, intaglio, stamping, stitching and collage on paper. Others here are woodcut, etching, relief, stitching, and collage on layers of handmade paper. I have also done some printmaking with collage so was inspired by the versatility of his work.

I also saw this exhibit and loved it! The 'Alice in Greyland' is even more interesting than it appears in this photo. I found some of the works with stitching fascinating....ever time I looked back and them there was more to see in intricacies and patterns...
