John Waters' four-color print Drunk is an historic achievement in the development of photogravure, traditionally a one-color medium for reasons of technical difficulty in the registering of multi-plate impressions. Photogravure, an intaglio printing process, gives unique luminosity, texture and durability to photographic prints. In four-color printing, it allows for great richness, saturation and experimentation.
John Waters has had a profound influence on contemporary popular culture through his work in film. He is the author and director of the legendary cult classics Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble and Pecker, as well as of the popular mainstream features Hairspray, Serial Mom, and Cecil B. Demented.
Waters takes his imagery for prints from stills of movies, both his and others'. The images for Drunk are of Edith Massey in Female Trouble, on the left, and Glenn Milstead, "Divine," in Pink Flamingoes, on the right. Waters has exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Milan, and throughout Switzerland and Germany.
