Paul Collins' life-long involvement in printing and the print process made his encounter with Michael Woolworth a fortuitous meeting of the minds. For the past 20 years, Collins paintings have almost exclusively used various print methods in the application of paint to canvas. Relief printing and screen printing have been his most oft-used techniques, and these new lithographs for Woolworth Publications are a translation of his paintings onto the lithographic stone. These prints explore the magic of those interference patterns that we call moirés, in the creation of a series of dynamic surfaces that undulate and float on the picture plane. These abstract compositions are enhanced, and further interfered with, through the addition of marginal commentary in the form of an adjunct rubber stamp. The stamps act as a foil to these non-objective abstractions, much as marginalia on a printed document interrupt and extend the reading of that document. They also act here, as representations of our incidental thoughts in the wandering mind as we are confronted with such abstract stimuli as a painting, a piece of music, a poem, or another human.
