My request:

I want every artist to send me
two colour xerox copy, size A 4,
of a self portrait done in
any medium.

I am going to make here
in Floripa a great super exposition
of Art-Xerox , theme: self portrait,
in the first 2004 half year.
It will be made a video of the show,
and it will go to my website that is under
construction, and the resarch willl be
also published in the
"Cadernos de Gravura" .

I wish to invite also David Hockney
to send me a xerox, too.
Does anyone know his email?

Robert, thanks for your help,
I will be sending my selfportrait
to you in these days.
I love your work.

Thanks once more.

Murilo in Floripa, Brasil.

Send to:

Murilo Antonio Pereira
Rua Almirante Lamego, 870/405

Hi, Robert,

I forgot to ask to the artists
to send very clearly their addresses
and a five lines curriculum vitae.

Thanks once more and forever.

Okay, Murilo, now I'm REALLY confused. You said a xerox machine can
be manipulated and there are colors??? I had thought Xerox machines
made plain old black and white copies, like you might get at the local
library. How can you manipulate colors? The only way I can ever
manipulate the color is through photoshop and then making choices with
my computer when I want to print it out using my photo copier.

By the way, my scanner can be used as a copy machine by sending the
scanned image directly to the copier. That still isn't what you want?
The print would be coming out of my Epson color photo copier, or my hp
laser black and white printer direct from the scanned image.

Anyway, thanks for your explanation of this. Don't know if there's any
place around this area where I can do this, so I may not be able to
send mine.

Juan - it looks like you have stirred quite a pot of interest! My
self-portrait is also too large for the photocopier, so I will print it
out on my inkjet printer and take it to the copy shop and you will
receive an 8 1/2" x 11" copy. I hope that will do the trick. Now all
I have to do is see if I can print my digital file out to the right
size. In my whacky brain I am intrigued with the idea of a woodcut
becoming a digital file and morphing into laser copy. There is just
something quite poetic, not to mention magic, about all that movement
with the same image. I guess the next thing would be to make a solar
print from the xerox copy by printing it on acetate - - - but, that's
another show -

Okay, Gayle Wohlken,
what I asked is so simple to do:
you take a print of a self portrait (auto-retrato) you have done
and go to a xeox store and ask them to do a color xerox of
the print. Just it.
Please do it. I love your work that I went to your website very
times and I need your work to my show.
Thank you,

Any Kinko's in the world uses xerox machines to photocopy.
Murilo, very interesting project, I would love to participate! Do you
have a deadline for this project? For receiving the xerox copies?

Thanks for sharing the Artist In Residency Call.
About the self portrait exchange:

Si, yo he trabajado durante varios anios en exposiciones de arte correo, y
me parece bien el tema. No en todas las convocatorias de arte-correo se
aceptan copias porque muchas veces la calidad del papel es mala, pero en
cambio se pueden enviar trabajos experiementales, collages, grabados,
monotipos, etc. Asi que adelante con tu idea, estoy seguro que muchos
miembros del Baren Forum participarian en el proyecto.
Best wishes

First let me tell you that I find your woodcuts very inspirational, I loved
since the first time I visited your site.
About my prints, well... I have some galleries, as you could noticed. I like
to work in a variety of mediums, from etching on copper plates to aluminum
litho plates to polyester.
The "Monoprints" gallery is perhaps the group of works that don't fit in
any other category: They are in fact, one of a kind pieces, although
sometimes I use the plates in more that one works. They are a sort of
collage, where I use woodcuts, linoleum, etchings, rubber prints (ones made
by myself and some others bought in office supplies), the "nude" rolls with
ink and even pieces of inkjet prints on cotton paper.
You know, I try to enjoy myself and to do something I like, no matter how
it is called.

Well, best wishes for everybody,
