Cole Rogers created this print for the "Alabama Print Portfolio" while still an undergraduate student at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Rogers says the opportunity became "an out growth of learning and experimenting with the etching process and the materials." In this print, he successfully tested masking tape and spray paint to determine if they would work as acid resists.
Since this early investigation, Rogers has continued with printmaking. He earned a Master Printer certificate from Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico and co-founded his own printmaking studio, Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, MN. Here he continues making his own works while also guiding contemporary artists such as Willie Cole and Julie Mehretu through the printmaking process.
