Charles Hobson
Geometry, 1989
9 color lithograph
21.75 x 16 in.

Charles Hobson’s Geometry was pulled at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, CA on a flatbed transfer press. 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. The artist continued to make changes and refinements and added more runs to the print during the editioning. Several “rainbow rolls” were employed to produce subtle color shifts. The artist hand-colored the color trial proofs with watercolor and pastel.
