The Donut Shop collaboration with Tom Burtonwood started while both working at Columbia College Chicago in the Photography Department. Tom was teaching web design, and they were managing their Digital Facilities.

This donut dialogue continued for the better part of a decade, iterations including a 3D printed donut, a mug and now in its current form as a dozen risography prints in a canvas donut box.

They have returned over and over to the same image of a chocolate sprinkles donut to dig deep into the process and use the simple but recognizable form to push the limits of cognition within the images we made.

Each donut is made from at least four printed layers. The Baker’s Dozen is sold wrapped in an inkjet-printed canvas donut box.

Dimensions: 11 x 14"

The Donut Shop
(Rogers Park)

Established in 2011, the Donut Shop is a small independent print + publishing operation focused on artist publications, editions and various print ephemera.The Donut Shop is a curatorial endeavor focused on selling affordable work that promotes emerging artists and engages new collectors. Using the model of the bakery as a method of distribution the vernacular of food consumption is mimicked to define selection, packaging, and pricing. They take the collection into the physical world sending the work directly to the audience. Combining an innovative form of artwork delivery and the public’s magical, wacky obsession with the donut, the aim is to encourage public engagement, accessibility, and empowered viewership at events and in the arts community.
