The works in Material Recovery reclaim common materials such as cardboard, plastic, and wood – the very products that flow through the nearby Port of Los Angeles destined for landfills. As printmakers, the members of Lynk Collective have a vested interest in the ongoing recovery and reduction of waste. The paper on which they print— “rag” paper—was traditionally made from scraps of recycled cotton rags. Material Recovery: Printmaking with Recycled Materials is an expression of Lynk Collective’s values, as ecologically conscious artists inhabiting a shared earth, producing artwork made from recycled rather than raw materials.
Established in 2017, LYNK Collective is a group of two dozen artists from the Orange County and Los Angeles area who collaborate on projects and exhibitions through the medium of printmaking. LYNK Collective has been featured in The Hand, Pressing Matters, and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society blog, Press On.
