Size: 11x17”

Paper: Medium-weight card stock

Printing/production:   University of Pennsylvania's, The Common Press.

About: Multi-pass, really unique two-sided screen print on an already printed piece (possibly all the black images were already on the piece when Carson decided to print right over the top of it). This print feels very experimental. Sharp edges. Fingerprint smudge and paint transfers. Small paper top-tear middle top.  Carson embossed logo lower right.  Signed “David Carson” in pencil lower right.

Following a guest lecture event at the University of Pennsylvania, Carson visited the University’s letterpress department. The result was his Rules of Grafic Design series. Carson adds, “After lecture at uof p got to visit their letterpress department, a small basement room, and play a bit!...”

For many years, Carson kept these handpicked pieces sandwiched together in a thick, well-travelled portfolio case.  Some are gritty, smudged, ink-splattered, fingerprinted, layered, torn, double-sided studies reminiscent of his earlier years. Others are simple, clear and evocative. These pieces aren't pristine. They come with defects, blemishes, tears and rubbings. They’re unique, experimental, one-of-a-kind expressions of Carson in action. He signed these pieces in the summer of 2015.
