Two Cents Press

Gallery description

Two Cents Press is a printmaking residency and a fine art print publisher located in the remote medieval hilltop village of Serrazzano, in the Metal Hills, in Tuscany. We publish resident artists’ works in limited editions that we share with the artists.
We encourage collaboration among artists and we support experimentation and the combination of different processes and techniques.

Recently we began publishing a limited edition artists’ magazine called MAH! that relies on the contributions of artists both invited or in residence. MAH! is a magazine on art, poetry, politics and anything in between, with an iconoclastic bend and a skeptical point of view.

In Italian, “mah!” is an utterance that may signify many different points of view, surprise or condemnation, but mostly incertitude and bewilderment. We believe that doubt is a solid ground you can stand on, one of the few things you can be sure of.

Much of the work of Italian/Mexican artist and architect Cinzia N. Rojas relates to the physicality and the three-dimensionality of photosensitive material. As an artist in residence at Two Cents Press, in 2018 she had experimented with chemigrams and
cyanotypes. Earlier this year she contacted Two Cents Press proposing a project for an issue of MAH! that dealt with the concept of impermanence, which sounded quite timely given the volatility of the Covid-19 situation. Remotely, we developed a plan and, as
soon as restrictions to travel between different regions were lifted, she drove from Rome to Serrazzano where in the course of three intense days we worked together producing MAH! issue 13 – THE EPHEMERAL which features text and four hand pulled gravures
reproducing photographs of cyanotypes — made on ice — that were shot while the ice was melting. The edition of 30 copies was split between the artist and Two Cents Press.
