  • Catalogue Essay

    "Print Test Panel (Darkroom Manuals) is a set of four variable silkscreen prints by Sara Cwynar. The work borrows an image from an '80s darkroom manual demonstrating how ink is laid down in offset printing; in the process of scanning the black-and-white graphic, Cwynar transforms the image by moving the page across the scanner bed. In each of these silkscreens, the 3- and 4-color prints (comprised of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are differentiated only by the order in which each color is laid down, resulting in 4 varying colorways." - Printed Matter
