This exhibition features contemporary printmakers of the United States of America.
American artist, Andrew DeCaen has curated this exhibition as part of his Artist in Residency during the month of September at the Il Bisonte Foundation for Printmaking.
The exhibition includes a selection of artists hailing from a variety of geographic regions in the United States and representing the status of the contemporary research, aesthetics and technical diversity in printmaking. These artists work in modes from figuration, surrealist trajectories, image sampling, naturalistic documentation, and lyrical abstraction, exploring current issues including environmental concerns, urban development and blight, feminism, desensitization of modern violence, and interruptions of conventionally held truths. The exhibition demonstrates the vitality and diversity of contemporary printmaking with a wide variety of processes and techniques including: woodcut relief, letterpress relief, relief embossing, acid etching, electrolytic etching, aquatint, metal engraving, photo-intaglio, stone lithography, plate lithography, screen print, layered digital printing, and other delicate and complex techniques.
