Artists come to work at Tandem Press because it is an experimental facility that gives them the freedom to create new and innovative work with the expertise of the Tandem Press master printers at their (side?…. Eh words). At Tandem Press, they have the opportunity to undertake projects without commercial restrictions, allowing them to explore new ways to expand the work they create in their own studios. Many highly ambitious and widely recognized projects have been completed in our studio including Art Spiegelman’s two-sided lithograph Lead Pipe Sunday #2; Robert Cottingham’s An American Alphabet: A-Z, a series of twenty-six highly realistic lithographs depicting each letter of the American alphabet through images of classic and neon signs; Mickalene Thomas’s Interior: Zebra with Two Chairs and Funky Fur, an image composed from seventy-five elements that were printed by hand, cut in specific shapes, and collages together; and Judy Pfaff’s Year of the Dog series, twelve large-scale multilayered prints that bend paper into magnificent organic sculptural forms. These projects, along with many other works created at Tandem Press, have been placed in prestigious public and private collections and have been reviewed in respected publications.
