Own a piece of Tandem Press history with this archival inkjet print, A Molecular Moment in Wine (Uncorked), by Tandem Press founder William Weege!
Using a multitude of media to create this print, William Weege began by screen-printing, relief printing and die cutting handmade paper. Several of the die cut sections were chosen and scattered across a flat bed scanner. Once the pieces were scanned in the computer, Weege, manipulated the image and added in new elements (note the Hieronymus Bosch critters scurrying about!). Next, the digital file was sent to the printer and the image was printed.
Weege then worked the Tandem Curator Tim Rooney, armed with his sewing machine and his box of “paper jewels,” and each digital print got a unique pair of hand-printed die cut elements glued on the surface, then stitched across using Weege’s Singer Industrial Zigzag sewing machine.
William Weege (1935-2020) joined the faculty of the Art Department at UW-Madison in 1971, and founded Tandem Press in 1987. He was a nationally known painter, printmaker, and inventor. Weege’s work can be found in numerous public and private collections. Click HERE to view work by William Weege in the Chazen permanent collection!
