Experiments with Encaustic Collagraph with Visiting Artist Dorothy Cochran #915

Discover and embrace this compelling non-toxic printmaking process! Engaging experimentation, artists will use hot wax to create their printmaking matrix and be challenged to enhance their print practice. The fluid nature of the collagraph method is appealing for its versatility, painterly effect, and ease of manipulation. Wax is applied to a plexiglass substrate using gestural brushwork then further carved, scraped, and incised for textural effects. Found objects can be stamped and pushed into the surface; linear elements created with hot tools, tapes, and stencils may be used for precise geometry and image definition. This technique can accommodate both abstract and realistic imagery. Plates will be printed with Akua soy based inks in both intaglio and relief on fine art papers. The class will also explore layered monotypes and chine collé applications.

About the Teaching Artist

Dalani Tanahy is a native of San Diego, California with maternal roots from Waikapu, Maui. A lifelong artist in many media, she was drawn to kapa making over 15 years ago and stayed with it because of its diversity and rareness. Dalani’s favorite kapa to make are the ones people will use, whether a pa‘u to wear for a wedding, a baby’s blanket, or burial kapa, she feels proudest of the kapa that is made for actual use. She is known for making soft and pliable kapa. With kapa education always being at the forefront of her work, she enjoys teaching students about the ingenuity, patience, and artistry of not only Hawaiians, but all of our ancestors who respected and worked with the ‘aina. Dalani’s work was recently featured Mohala Hou Ke Kapa / Kapa Blossoms Anew, an exhibition at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. kapahawaii.com
