This webinar explores the collaborative nature of stop motion animation and monotypes. Join Susan Rostow, multi-media artist and the creator of Akua Inks, as she discusses her collaboration in creating the monotype-based stop-animations "Long Journey Home" and "Nested World."
A total of forty-two printmakers participated in these two videos and they left a real impression -- pun intended. Susan Rostow will talk about the methods and equipment used for doing stop motion monotype animation and participants. She will be joined by printmakers Phyllis and Victor Merriam, as well as Beth Fein, who will talk about their experiences. The webinar will include time for a Q&A.
LONG JOURNEY HOME created during Printfest 2018, a fair hosted by the International Print Center, New York and NESTED WORLD, created at the SGC International printmaking conference, Texchange 2019, will be shown and discussed during the webinar.
Susan Rostow is a Brooklyn based multi-media artist who works with printmaking, sculptural books and animation. In addition to Rostow’s active career as an artist, she is an innovative inventor of printmaking methods and materials and the creator of Akua inks.
Phyllis and Victor Merriam, collaborating as thepostdigitalprintmaker, investigate the synergy between technology and traditional printmaking. Their blog features the work of artists that incorporate technology into their traditional printmaking practices and have curated several gallery shows and written articles related to this topic.
Beth Fein is an artist based in California whose practice encompasses printmaking, performance, sculpture, and installation. She continually explores the transient nature of movement and integrating performance and visual art into each. It is equal parts conceptual and material, chance and choice.
