About the Book
A catalog of George Miyasaki's work published by Magnolia Editions, this publication collects for the first time more than 20 years of collagraph, mixed media and tapestry editions by the West Coast's premier vanguard of Abstract Expressionism. Each print in Miyasaki's editions at Magnolia has been reproduced in full color, providing an overview of the dynamic variations in color and texture which are Miyasaki's trademark.
Magnolia Editions is a fine art print studio in Oakland, California. For more than twenty years, Magnolia has specialized in experimental and unorthodox projects, working closely with artists to produce and publish print multiples, unique artist's prints, works on paper, and textiles. The studio provides artists with technical expertise and access to a handmade papermaking facility, etching presses, a powerful automated cutting machine, and large scale pigment-based electronic printing processes. As the resident writer at Magnolia Editions, Nick Stone has produced books and commentary for artists such as Chuck Close, Alex Katz, Hung Liu, and Squeak Carnwath. Stone's most recent publications outside of Magnolia include a feature article in First Person magazine reviewing William Kentridge's "Five Themes" survey at SFMOMA and an essay, "Talk About Your Body Electric," in Deborah Oropallo's latest catalog, Pomp.
