Milja represents an ongoing interest in creating a series of print work based on photography. The works emphasis, is based on experimenting with the Halftone pixelated process to create fine art Print based Portraiture. Hanrahan first became familiar with Halftone as a mass printing technique by looking under a magnifying glass at newspaper photographs and 1970’s book covers and illustrations. After graduating from college and looking for new means of research, he found himself once again looking at Halftone, this time by passing by everyday, low lying advertising billboards. This close up physical encounter gave a new sense of Halftone as a means of visually reproducing imagery. Hanrahan incorporates the depth of perception that Halftone brings, by visually reproducing imagery in his own work, as with Milja. The Halftone process of printing, which effectively replaced wood-engraving and lithography in the illustration of story’s; particularly newspapers and books, is its self becoming redundant by on-line technology and new methods of printing for media and advertising. Milja is a sort of mediation, between art and technology.
