Prints Made by the Hands of the Artist
When the artist told his print-making teacher that he wanted to have his own etching press, Master Printer Tony Zepeda (who had produced prints for such great names in contemporary fine art as Motherwell, Dibenkorn, Hockney, and others) replied, “That’s dangerous!” The teacher’s response alluded to the addictive nature of the printmaking process. Indeed, most of the great artists of the 21st Century had at some point in their career developed some degree of obsession over printmaking.
In 1998, Wong Shue installed an etching press in his Los Angeles studio and has continued to periodically produce limited edition drypoint prints.
