Curator's Note, Phil Sanders

Straight from the Hellbox is an exhibition gathering publishers and printers to show off the fruits of this year’s labors of love. Printmaking is a full contact, team sport, with dedicated fans. The artists brought their best and it would have been a shame for these prints to have fallen into the cracks in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and the demise of the Editions | Artist’s Book Fair.

David Krut, a long time supporter of printers and artists, has opened up his gallery for this exhibition because he believes in the power of the print to multiply the artist’s voice. The prints cover a wide range of traditional and experimental techniques and include artists that are well known and soon to be known. David and I both believe that the unique part of printmaking is the collaborative spirit. That encapsulates David’s approach to publishing and my approach in curating this exhibition.

A hellbox is a printer’s bin for discarded type and press parts. It is where a printer goes to find a missing letter or spare part to fix a broken press. The printer’s motto: Make it Work, means the hellbox is turned to and gone through often.
