Prior to the fifteenth century, images were rare, locked away in palaces to which few had access, or affixed to the walls of churches. The technology of printmaking, developed around 1400, suddenly made it possible for essentially identical images to be mass-produced from a single matrix of carved wood or metal. Technology, therefore, was responsible for making the printed image a ubiquitous presence in modern society through newspapers, magazines, and billboards. In turn, a recent technology, the computer, has been responsible for the eclipse of the printed image. Today, infinitely multiplied images flash across computer screens and smart phones. The proposed exhibition posits the relevancy of the printed image in this digital age. It aims to show the vibrancy and diversity of contemporary fine printmaking, and the possible marriages of digital and hand-printing technology.
