About This Event

In this engaging discussion, Luis and Lea Remba will provide fascinating insight into the exhibition Rufino Tamayo and the Mixografía® Years, currently on display at the Meridian International Center.

In the early 1970's, the Rembas approached renowned Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo to produce a series of lithographs. Tamayo was interested, but he made it clear that he was looking for new horizons within the medium - particularly seeking ways to get more volume and texture into his prints. This artistic challenge was the impetus for the invention of the Mixografia® technique.

In this engaging discussion, Luis and Lea Remba will provide fascinating insight into the exhibition Rufino Tamayo and the Mixografía® Years, currently on display at the Meridian International Center.

In the early 1970's, the Rembas approached renowned Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo to produce a series of lithographs. Tamayo was interested, but he made it clear that he was looking for new horizons within the medium - particularly seeking ways to get more volume and texture into his prints. This artistic challenge was the impetus for the invention of the Mixografia® technique.

To accommodate Tamayo's needs, a printing process was developed allowing for the printing of images in relief and with fine surface detail. The technique not only registered the texture and volume of Tamayo's design, but it also granted him the freedom to use any combination of solid materials in its creation. Tamayo was delighted with the process and results, leading to the printing of 80 editions with the artist in over 17 years of collaboration.
