"I started thinking of these as COLLAGRAPHS (a collaged print) but some people refer to the process as blind emboss/blind embossing.  These prints were made by collaging jocks to masonite board with varnish and various sealants. You can see the edge in these as they also make a border. I soak a sheet of Rives BFK to soften and then send them through an intaglio press under high pressure with a few felt blankets to buffer. They have strong formal elements but also have a strong tactile approach too. The soaked paper allows for a deep imprint much like the mark left by the elastic on skin. The connection to sports and masculinity have been central to my work of late, and I love how the jockstrap functions as this dated symbol or archetype of a specific type of masculinity and how that is appreciated and consumed differently today."  Christopher Selleck
