Catharine Clark Gallery and Mullowney Printing began their collaborative relationship with the release of Sandow Birk's "Ten Leading Causes of Death in America" (2004), a suite of chine-collé, direct gravure etchings. While working as the Master Printer at the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center on Maui, Hawaii, Mullowney published Sandow Birk's "Depravities of War" (2006 - 2007) a suite of fifteen, 48 x 96 inches woodcuts based on photo-reportage of the Iraq war. In 2011, Mullowney and Clark began co-publishing Birk's "Imaginary Monuments", a project that will ultimately comprise ten gravures.
After becoming a Master Printer at Crown Point Press in San Francisco, Paul Mullowney founded and managed studios in Ouda, Japan and on Maui, Hawaii. He teaches at Pacific Northwest College of Art, and has taught printmaking workshops. Named after his grandfather's commercial print studio founded in the early 1900's in Minneapolis, Mullowney Printing was founded in San Francisco in 2011.
Catharine Clark studied the history of art at the University of Pennsylvania prior to founding Catharine Clark Gallery in 1991. She has studied the history and techniques of printmaking and has exhibited artists' multiples since the gallery's inception. Catharine Clark Gallery has collaborated with Paul Mullowney since 2004.
