January 31 - March 27, 2014

This exhibition presents four artists who utilize printmaking techniques to create 3-dimensional works. 

Following Greenhill’s 2008 survey North Carolina printmakers, this exhibition continues to examine the evolution of printmaking as one of the dominant influences in today’s visual culture. The four artists brought together for this exhibition conceive works that defy the confines of a frame or matrix that is the basis of traditional printmaking and work towards a three dimensional presence in space. Through layering Western NC artist April V. Flanders builds up texture in installations composed of groups of prints in which plant forms appear to overrun gallery walls like some scientific experiment gone awry. A sense of wild yet fragile nature is also evident in the likenesses of deer and birds by Raleigh artist Mathew Curran.  The direct stencil process characteristic of urban street art utilizing ink or red NC clay as a pigment , lends his life-size subjects a haunting presence. Charlotte artist Indrani Nayar-Gall combines intaglio processes with paper-cutting and organic materials such as rice in new works examining the ritual traditions of her native India. Durham artist Mark Iwinski’s “stump prints” of ancient trees taken directly from old growth and utilizes printmaking as a surveyor’s tool for measuring contemporary amputations and absences.
