Peter Drake
Bathers, 1994
suite of 4 lithographs
17 x 13.25 in. each

Peter Drake’s Bathers suite was pulled at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, CA on a flatbed transfer press. The images were created by the artist by sanding away the highlights from sheets of mylar painted black. The drawings were transferred to plates via contact printing. The prints were pulled individually, one color run at a time. After a proofing session, where various color changes were tried, the artist selected a right to print which was used as the standard for the edition. After signing, the prints were varnished with an UltraViolet filtering polymer to enhance the richness of the color.
