Industrial Machinery in contemporary printmaking.

The combination of industry and art seems to be an influential interest for myself at this time. Here are some printers doing an incredible combination of the two properties.

Then there is Sidney Hurwitz who makes incredible prints with the intaglio and aquatint printmaking techniques. Here are more of his prints.
