Walls of grand prints at Stamps School of Art & Design
"Prints Bigger Than Your Car" was a fun class which I taught in Winter 2009. Students made grand, colossal prints indeed all bigger than their cars. Here are some shoots from the final display at the SSAD. -Endi
A day in the studio: Casey Fang
4 iterations of Divine Moment of Truth, achromotaic and color woodcuts on Rives BFK
A day in the studio: Joshua Nierodzinski (MFA candidate)
New woodcut iterations by Joshua Nierodzinski using two blocks, one hand-carved and the other produced using a CNC router. The linear drawing of a domestic interior was carved using a CNC router, which ensures precision and removes the presence of the human hand. The other, depicting a young woman with her fists suspended above a crumbling sand house, is organic and rife with innocent errors. When the two images are combined their individual meanings are complicated. An ambiguous reading is created that touches upon domesticity, youth, gender roles, and the role of technology.

Jill Brandwein produced many fantastic prints while at Stamps School from 2008-2012. This past summer, she was a fellow at BAU Institute in Otranto where she made new drawings and paintings while traveling through the hill towns of Puglia and Bari with those crazy “trulli” houses - like Alberobello and Ostuni. She also traveled along the coast of Salento and visited the city of Matera, acity built into the canyons. She sends us a fabulous set of paintings of places that she calls "truly bizarre and breathtaking."
