The Pitched Planes series are unique relief prints, made primarily using printing surfaces that are the products of industrial manufacture.
Each shape (plane) is made with a different surface. They are printed with woodcut and etching ink on 24x19 in / 61x48 cm hosho paper from Japan.
In this series, Maine was thinking about the legibility of the constituent patterns as they are recombined in various layers; the optical blending of hues; and, as always, the illusion of the third dimension.
