Jonathan & Allison Metzger • Des Moines, IA • Serigraphy

Jonathan & Allison co-founded Midnight Oil in 2015. They are a husband and wife team that create traditional silkscreen images without any use of digital technology or manipulation.

Compelled to create work that is inspired by their own experiences with nature, they visually explore the vast and diverse American Landscape.


Within their artistic process, they create hand-cut rubylith stencils as the basis for shapes and forms. They also produce traditional lithographic style tonal textures by using tusche washes, Stabilo pencils, grease crayons, spray paint, and India ink.

Using a wide variety of media allows the artists to push and explore the potentials of traditional silkscreen printmaking.

"Our artwork will always be made by our hands. Every limited edition is hand-drawn and hand-printed by us in our traditional print studio. "
