Group show: Artistic License

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday April 24
Butters
520 NW Davis St., 2nd floor
 
The theme of this group show is the monoprint, a type of print that incorporates both mechanical reproduction and personalized elements from the artist’s hand. Unlike other types of prints, such as lithographs, each monoprint is one of a kind. It’s a highly adaptable form, as this exhibition bears out. Elise Wagner incorporates encastic (wax) medium into her monoprints, while other artists, such as Eva Issaksen, Melinda Stickney-Gibson, and Jeff Hirst, variously incorporate oil paints, inks and gold leaf. One of the show’s most astonishing images is an abstraction by German-born Boston artist Bernd Haussmann from his ongoing Fugue series. With its deep-purple and chartreuse hues, the artwork is an etude on wavy, looping lines and calligraphic curlicues. It’s a small masterpiece and a thrilling example of what a monoprint can be. April 3-26.
