For her third collaboration with Counter Editions, Katherine Bernhardt created the 'Rainbow Cigarette' series of 100 unique lithographs. Each print has a different colour background with 'smoke' hand spray-painted by the artist in her New York studio. Printed in London with the wonderful Michael Taylor at Paupers Press, Bernhardt was attracted to the mis-registrations, blurring of colours, ink splash marks, and other unplanned incidents which occurred during the proofing process. They were of such appeal to Bernhardt that she decided to incorporate them into the whole edition. For Bernhardt this way of making a print has a close approximation to her studio practice and her instinct for making images, where chance and the accidental are favoured over the mechanical and the pre-planned.
