Editions and Artists' Book Fair in Chelsea. I neglected to take photos there, but you can see a slideshow in this online article from Art in America to get a flavor of the event. The one shot I did take was the one here, Daniel Heyman's large 65-part etching called When Photographers Are Blinded, Eagles' Wings Are Clipped. I also enjoyed the work at Anchor Graphics. Check out their website to see their impressive roster of artists.
My second stop was IPCNY for New Prints 2011/Autumn. Of all the shows I saw, this was my favorite. IPCNY exhibitions always run the full range, from hugely famous artists to emerging artists and covering pretty much all the techniques available to printmakers. Here are some of the works I saw, focusing on woodcuts.
|Trevor Banthorpe, color woodcut|
|Matthew Colaizzo, woodcut|
|Susan Goethel Campbell, woodblock and perforations|
|Alex Katz, moku hanga woodblock|
|S.V. Medaris, mounted woodcuts|
I finished my day at the IFPDA Print Fair at the Armory. Here are a few photos, again focusing on woodblock prints.
These woodblock prints by Fang Lijun were astounding. They looked so much like ink paintings. Very beautiful and haunting.
I've recently gotten acquainted with artist Sarah Brayer, who lives and works in Japan, and I looked for her work at the fair. I found it at the always-jam-packed Verne Gallery booth where I was unable to take any good photos, but check out Sarah's web site to see her latest handmade paper works, some of which contain luminous pigments.
Thanks for reading!
