At the beginning of making her edition Cheeseburger Deluxe, Katherine Bernhardt experimented with various colour combinations. During this process of colour proofing, the printer (in this case, the wonderful Michael Taylor at Paupers Press) is typically unconcerned with making technically perfect prints, and concentrates instead on producing rough examples for the artist to evaluate. Faced with numerous colour options, Bernhardt was less attracted to any single version, and more to the mis-registrations, blurring of colours, ink splash marks, and other unplanned incidents which occurred during the proofing process. They were of such appeal to Bernhardt that she decided to incorporate them into the whole edition. She asked the printer to follow a relatively random choice of colourways, and to allow for the same unplanned mark-making as would occur if he were simply proofing the print. The end result is a series of 100 unique prints. This is sold on consignment.
