DESCRIPTION

Talk with the Artists & Curators: Saturday, April 23, 3 pm

The Brand Library Art Galleries is pleased to present WALLPOWER: Limitless Prints, an exhibition featuring new and experimental work by seven Southern California artists.

Curators' Statement
What is it about size? Surely in Los Angeles we love space; the impact of “large–scale” rarely fails to delight. Driving though the many different communities and the landscape of Los Angeles has a specific impact on the artists who live here. In the Renaissance, printmakers pushed beyond the boundaries of their craft, making large printed installations, friezes and murals depicting maps, architecture and the nobility.

Piecing together individual prints created on small presses with even smaller paper they created enveloping environments to demonstrate particular viewpoints of their time. The advent of digital technology has merged with ancient methods such as wood cut and engraving, and artists still find this method of expressing the world around them using multiples highly seductive. While appreciative of (but not content to be confined to) the classic piece of paper with the traditional plate mark and border, the artists in this exhibition use printmaking to represent their own world here in Los Angeles, this vast city of possibility.
