The GH Art Gallery presents
A Printing Group Exhibition
Curator: Moshe Roas
A print exhibition
The field of printmaking has been going through significant changes in recent years, and several iconic print workshops closed. Printing is an area deeply rooted in the historical development of art and has been dominant in the world of art.
The lithograph opened up and perfected the ability to replicate, allowing different variations to be created from a single source. It is rooted in craftsmanship, but it has long since branched into the worlds of visual art, from the emergence of duplicating machines and their use in works of art, through the pop art of Andy Warhol and others, to the multidisciplinary use of the postmodernist era. Print today is an endless assortment of techniques, used in a very wide variety of fields.
The GH Art Center has chosen the course of developing this significant field and for the past three years has been holding print courses alongside an open print workshop.
The works are the fruit of an ongoing process that is still in progress. The learners, coming from diverse backgrounds, were invited to dedicate themselves to the colorful world of printing.
The course behind the exhibition initiated an exploration of actions and modes of work in the medium alongside the possibility of telling a story and transferring it onto the print substrate (textile / paper).
Each of the works offers a specific story, some of which is visible and some of which is hidden, but all of them ask the viewer to take part and delve deeper into the layers of color that create the image, the materiality and the present craft of the print-maker.
