  • Literature: Brewster 88
  • Notes: The Mixografia® printing process is a proprietary process invented and patented by Luis Remba and Shaye Remba. According to their website, "the process begins when the artist creates a model or 'maquette' out of any combination of materials from which the edition will be produced. A sequence of plates is then cast and molded from the maquette, resulting in a reverse three-dimensional cooper printing plate. The plate retains the shape and fine detail of the artist's original concept. The printing inks are applied by hand on the plate by the Master Printers, and moist paper pulp, produced entirely in-house from pure cotton fibers, is laid over the inked plate. The paper and printing plate are then run through the press under extremely high pressure...registering every nuance on its surface and transferring the ink to the paper. Because the paper is still wet as it runs through the press, the ink is absorbed into the paper's fibers, giving the prints extremely rich, saturated color and fresco-like qualities."

    This lot is accompanied by a printout of an email correspondence dated August-September 2016 with Ariel Zuniga, the artist's son, confirming the authenticity of this work.
