In 2012, Albert had the opportunity to visit Burning Bones Press in Texas for a print residency.

In this fifth print residency of his career, Albert applied his visual vocabulary by using pattern pieces from past projects as well as utilizing materials at hand to create new patterns. With the result of this exploration, the boundaries of the printmaking process resulted in an unparalleled number of large monoprints over the five working sessions.

Albert spent the week working with the co-founders of Burning Bones Press: Master Printer Patrick Masterson, an instructor at The Glassell School of Art who also teaches printmaking at the University of Houston, and Carlos Hernandez a Houston-based serigraphy artist.
