A suite of three color aquatints by Matt Magee, published by Manneken Press in 2021.

Manneken Press’ first project with Arizona-based artist Matt Magee was released in June 2021. Hard-edged and drawn from art historical precedents, Magee conceived “Plugs”, “Bugs” and  “Drugs” as an abstract poetic triptych that riffs on conceptual notions of language and iterative processes relating to stacking and sequencing. Using templates and measuring tools Magee drew the images directly onto copper plates, leaving space at the margins so formal information became centralized, focused and symbolic. The forms and their titles are suggestive but non-explicative. Magee’s prints are aquatints, hand-printed in colors on Somerset Velvet Soft White paper in editions of 20.
