End Paper: “GRS” Wheat-Paste Prints with Raj Bunnag
Putting prints where they probably don’t belong: linocut relief printmaking and wheat pasting. In this workshop Raj Bunnag demonstrates how he creates the imagery for his large-scale linocuts, chops them up, and wheat pastes them on the wall. Participants live paste a variety of Bunnag’s prints from his series March of Madness onto the walls of the NCMA. Learn why printmaking and wheat pasting is a match made in heaven.
