The Olive Branch Press is a press for producing professional editions of hand-printed prints and artist books, which are created in our studios for galleries and museums and print/book collectors. We have worked with the following artists: Kumi Korf, Zevi Blum, Buzz Spector, Kay WalkingStick, Peter Jogo, Katherine Anderson, and Maddy Rosenberg.

The formation of this press is based on the establishment of the Olive Press which began in the late 1980’s at Cornell University with two professors Greg Page and Viktor Kord, who published a series of professional publications independent of the university. Greg Page, a founding member of The Ink Shop, encouraged us to continue this legacy through the Olive Branch Press.

Kay WalkingStick – Blame the Mountains

In her work, Kay develops visual ideas about the metaphorical aspects of the Earth. Through frequent journeys to Rome, she continues to explore these tropes by incorporating figures in her drawings and paintings - her characteristic abstract landscape paintings have become a stand-in for her own body. Her forceful, erotic, sometimes frightening figures, be they classical Greek and Roman ones or the North American KokopellL depict psychological states. Mountains in their skyward thrust embody chthonic energy, permanence and sacred space. ...

Maddy Rosenberg – Dystopia

Dystopia is a voyage to a town that exists as only an amalgam of other places. This town plays across the picture plane, appearing flat. Skewed perspectives are seen around street corners, through building cracks, and beneath archways; any sense of real space is inverted. Open the cover and a three dimensional city emerges, unfolds, and metamorphoses. You can read Dystopia conventionally, page by page ar pull it into your space and watch the buildings stretch and pop up across the surface. Then wander through streets constructed from bits and pieces of sepia-colored, historical Prague, Paris, London, and New York. The eclectic assemblage of buildings creates a feeling of desertion with only a glimpse of a human shadow in this carved city. ...
