Twelve printmakers using techniques that range from traditional to digital express the freedom of printmaking to cross boundaries both technically and conceptually.
Printmaking is found both in galleries and in the streets. In fine art and in revolution. Because of printmaking’s foundations in reproducibility, multiplicity and versatility, it negotiates the entire spectrum between the static and the temporal.
Each of the printmakers in the show uses printmaking to respond to profound aesthetic beliefs, to explore social and environmental issues as well as to investigate the implications of culture on the natural world.
The world has become pure image. This show examines the nature of seeing.
