Ken Buhler came to Oehme Graphics from Brooklyn, New York, in March 2011, and worked intensely for two weeks formulating a series of seven copper and solar plate prints and a series of forty-one monoprints, all entitled Notes From the Edge of the World. The suite of seven etchings are also available as a boxed portfolio with letterpress text pages. Ken’s use of rubber stamps, stencils, and his beautifully delicate drawing style are the building blocks of his intricate and otherworldly artwork.
