Friend of Empty Stretch and faculty member at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, Dennis O’Neil is combining photography and printmaking to produce a project called 1,000 Faces. Hear what Mr. O’Neil has to say about the project and how you, an integral part of his process, can help make it all happen.
By altering photographic imagery through innovative and experimental printmaking methods, I am creating unique multidimensional prints that are challenging not only the traditional view of what a screen-print is but how they are made and their evolving relationship to digital media and others of art that rely on photographic material.
I am currently working on a project called “1,000 FACES” that involves a variety of people, including artists, William Christenberry, Renée Stout, Tom Green and David Chung as well as international artists such as Russian, Leonid Tishkov. All of these prints will reflect my collaborative approach.
See some of the examples above. Look on Dennis’ Kickstarter page to view more of his art, find out more about 1,000 Faces, and how, as a backer, you become a participant as well.
