Rick Dula
Manhattan Arrow, 1990
12 color lithograph
24 x 36 in.
edition of 70

Manhattan Arrow was pulled at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, CA on a flatbed transfer press. Each of the 12 runs was drawn separately by Rick Dula on translucent mylar. 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. The artist continued to make changes and refinements and added more runs to the print during the editioning. The right to print, lacking many of the runs that appear on the edition prints, was painted on by the artist and is now designated as one of the working proofs.
