YES. Yesterday’s paper experiment was exactly what I was looking for. I just tried the first full-size print on gray Rives BFK paper, and it looks fantastic. It will take many, many hours to treat 112 sheets of paper in order to do my edition of 5 copies (plus one for Frank Santoro and one for me), but that’s okay… the goal is to do justice to the art, not to be efficient. You just might have to wait a little longer to get your mitts on a copy, that’s all.
