Gray Area Print represents the printmaking projects of Maggie Lomeli. Maggie is a master printer of Screenprinting and Lithography. In 2009, she graduated from Tamarind Institute of Lithography in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she learned the art of collaborative Fine Art Printmaking. As a collaborator, she works one-on-one with artists and designers to conceptualize projects utilizing printmaking.
"I see myself as being in a special position within art-making in the Los Angeles area because my job as a collaborator is to make stronger work that is informed from a different perspective. My technical role is to translate an artist's idea into a media they may not be familiar with, primarily resulting in making a multiple. My focus on the technical aspects—color mixing, layering, curating, surface quality, trouble shooting and intuition—frees up the artist to focus on their aesthetic role.
Printmaking is an unique experience where the artist slows down and deconstructs their usual modes of mark making, giving them insight into their own process. I act as the facilitator to this process.
Because Los Angeles is home to a multifaceted community my endeavors include projects that range from large scale installations, to marketing materials, to custom wedding invitations. I enjoy working on any project large or small, and always welcome a challenge."
