Produced 2015
Master Printer: Kelvin Mann


Donald Teskey’s ­­­­­­­­­­Untitled is the 2015 Presentation Print commissioned by the Print Club of New York to its members. This is a carborundum and intaglio print using 4 plates. It was printed at Stoney Road Press in Dublin, Ireland by master printer, Kelvin Mann. The paper is Hahnemühle German Etching paper 310 gsm. The paper size is 22.6 x 20.8 inches (57.5 x 53 cm) and the plate size is 12.4 x 12.8 inches (31.5 x 32.5 cm). The edition size is 200 impressions for Print Club of New York members plus 1 archival print and a limited number of artist and printer proofs.

Teskey’s print places the viewer off the north west coast of Ireland at a raised vantage point observing the interplay between shadow and light in darkening skies as they reveal rich and earthy colors among the rocks and cliffs below. The artist’s skill as a landscape painter shines through in this printed work as well as in his many other paintings and prints depicting the dramatic environment of Ireland’s western coastline, wooded river valleys, and vacant structures.
