Henry Wolyniec never called himself a printmaker, though he made much of his work on a Vandercook.
He used the press not as a delivery system but as a collaborator. By building up and manipulating layers of material on the print bed, he created a unique piece each time, no two alike.
What could you possibly fit on a roller bed? For an exhibition about the history of the donut, he printed bagels. Five dozen later, he assembled them as a mosaic and found serendipity in the shape. They created his signature mark, a dot.
