I have started working on reproducing a collage by Jim Hodges. His installation, Arena II (given a shaft of sunglight) was originally a hand drawn 20+ layer ensemble. We are now making replications with archival quality inkjet prints. The problem with the printing process is that every shape has to be printed separately which takes 15 minutes on average. So completion of a single piece takes at least 5 days and we are are doing an edition of 30!
