As a guest of Minot State’s Darwin Day celebration, Tom Christison visited Flat Tail Press in February 2016 and produced two print editions. While working with his signature toner-based lithography on the stone, Christison also experimented with toner on transparent film for screen printing.
In his first print, B. Flagellum, Christison worked alongside students to create a dynamic mixed-media montage, partially inspired by a microscopic propulsion device employed by bacteria. The print featured colorful biomorphic shapes resounding themes from a lecture that he gave entitled Bacterial Flagellum: Not So Fast.
In the second print, Bacterial Flagellum, Tom relied more on his lithography background and produced a vibrant composition, using illusion to suggest complex spatial relationships.
