I worked at Gemini G.E.L., one of the best-known and longest-running fine art printhouses, from 2011 to 2015, and in that time, in addition to the two large Julie Mehretu projects I helped lead, I've been involved with a number of other projects. Some of them are pictured below.

Richard Serra's Double Rift II. One of many gigantic (8' x 12') one-color Richard Serra prints I helped master printer Xavier Fumat edition and etch. Hundreds of pounds of copper and ink and hundreds of gallons of acid are required to edition each of these monuments.
Two Richard Tuttle prints I editioned with master etcher Case Hudson, Pacific Seriously and For John Altoon. Pacific in particular required a strange combination of many techniques in addition to typical etching, like casting paper pulp in molds, chine collé-ing gauze and collage.
Xavier and Isaac working on two stages of the Richard Serra process: sealing the final print and checking the etch on a large plate.
Julie Mehretu's Auguries, a 7' x 15' print with 12 colors and 48 plates I helped edition in my first months at Gemini.
