Kate Petley created two series of unique photogravure monoprints at Manneken Press in the first months of 2022. In her paintings Petley works in the intersection between painting and photography, and for this project she proceeded with a similar modus operandi, making 3-D objects, covering them with gradient film, then staging, lighting and photographing them. These photographic images became the basis for photogravure plates which were printed in black ink. Petley added layers of color over the photogravure prints via relief printing and stencils, creating a series of related but unique prints. Though Petley’s “Marker” and Signal” prints are a singular blending of 3-D and 2-D imagery, 21st C. and 19th C. photographic processes, and relief printing, the earliest form of printmaking, these arresting prints are thoroughly contemporary.

The artist’s signature, title and date are in pencil on the back, lower margin. The prints are embossed with the Manneken Press blindstamp.
