Photogravure/screenprint with aluminum glitter appliqué

In Tampa Orchid, two copper plates were used to print two orchid images, derived from the same photographic image but printed side by side in tones of black and blue. The black flower remains anchored on its dense, nonreflective photogravure background, while the blue flower floats on a screenprinting of glittery silver.
