The collaborative print media work of Marijke Nap and Gerri York began as a result of a residency at Grafisch Atelier Utrecht, a print studio in the Netherlands, and continued in ensuing years to foster a body of shared work. Implementing a similar working process, the use of a flatbed scanner and a shared purpose and enthusiasm, they were able to envision a collaborative image for an edition of prints for their residency at GAU. This creative relationship continued between the two artists back in Vancouver, developing ideas that experimented with transparency and reflection, and testing the limits of the scanner to further their imagery. The process of creating this print work involved constructing a digital print as a basic matrix and adding traditional print elements in etching, lithography and screen-print.
