I worked exclusively as master printer and archivist with photographer Rodney Smith for 16 years. My prints have been displayed in myriad museums and galleries around the world including the Edwyn Houk Gallery (New York), the Robert Klein Gallery (Boston), The Fahey/Klein Gallery (Los Angeles), Gilman Contemporary (Sun Valley), FOST Gallery (Singapore), Timothy Yarger Gallery (Bangkok), Eckhart Gallery (The Hague), Actes 2 Gallerie (Paris), Florian Gallery (London). My work has also been featured in such publications as TIME Magazine, the New York Times, and Vanity Fair. Rodney was meticulous, precise and demanding, always seeking quality and perfection in his work and his prints. That obsessive attention to detail has become woven into the fabric of my craft and aesthetic which drives the production of my high quality work. I specialize in making both archival pigment prints and silver gelatin prints in my own studio and looking forward to printing your incredible photographs.
"Patricia is the most masterful printer I know. I studied the art of black and white printmaking for many years, and Patricia has far surpassed my ability. Her presence is in every picture I produce, there for all to see...Patricia, my steadfast associate, has been making the most beautiful prints imaginable. Without her support and skill there is no photograph. I see the picture; she makes it real."
ARCHIVAL PIGMENT PRINTS
Archival pigment prints (otherwise known as Iris or Gicleé) are fine art digital inkjet prints. These prints are made with archival inks and offered on the finest archival papers, to ensure their longevity. Archival pigment prints made with pigment ink on an archival paper can last up to 200 years without deterioration. I offer a variety of watercolor papers, and matte exhibition fiber papers to elevate your images into works of art. They are produced on the latest Epson technology which is able to produce images up to 44 inches wide.
exhibition SILVER GELATIN PRINTS
Silver gelatin prints are black and white and handmade in the darkroom. I have been making darkroom prints for over 20 years. The smell of chemicals and the magic of watching the image appear on paper has always been alluring to me. I can dodge and burn like nobody's business to create a print that is evenly exposed and perfectly analog. I print on fiber based paper, making each print ready to framed for an exhibition. Darkroom prints are limited in size. The largest I can create in the darkroom is 20 x 24. Work prints, toning and spotting are also available on request.
