  • Catalogue Essay

    Alan Shields and Bill Weege (Master Pinter and Founder of Jones Road Print Shop and Stable) interviewed by artist Howardena Pindell in Barneveld, Wisconsin, November 16, 1974
    HP: In some prints you deliberately use one side of the paper and others you print on both. Is there a reason?
    BW: It's an accident.
    AS: It's deliberately accidental. The grids are quite obviously, to me anyway, divided into two sides–they have two sides ... I don't think that either way is right, I just do all that's possible.
