The statement below is from Tobey Moss -
"Printmaking is a risky business! The artist’s hand, concept and palette often result in startling surprises because of the physical efforts; the many types of available papers; the humidity of the moment affecting the viscosity of pigments; absorbency of the selected paper; the resultant mirror image from the printer, the pressure of the press - and the skill of the printer! Sometimes the print is pulled by the artist; sometimes the print is pulled in collaboration with a trained printer. These are only a few of the many elements that can affect the approved print - and the satisfaction of the artist.
My Gallery was opened with a specialization in Prints. Though we offer paintings, drawings and sculpture also, the love of printmaking is still a primary stimulus."
Perhaps she'll also proffer some of Jacob Landau's wonderful prints to look at (if so requested). The last time I saw my friend Jacob (who continues to remain a guide and inspiration to me), was at one of his last openings at this very gallery, shortly before his death. Despite the frailty of his body, his indomitable & fierce spirit was keenly evident, & it was wonderful seeing him surrounded by his extraordinary body of work.
Thanks to Erynn for pointing this one out! Thanks also to Tobey Moss for keeping printmaking as a passionate concern.
