Printmaker Evan Bellantone invites us to his studio to share a behind-the-scenes look at his process and influences. Evan’s monoprints will be exhibited alongside works by Fitzhugh Karol in Drawn Lots July 28 - August 5.
“I started the wood block prints in 2012 after noticing and admiring the wood texture making cameo appearances in art throughout history.”
“I realized I had never seen a print for which the grain was the subject. This project represents a way to enter concepts like drawing, nature and ecology together.”
“Abstract work becomes possible when the idea might be difficult to explain with language or perhaps is not language-based at all. I am most interested in work that creates and encourages this kind of abstract discussion by posing many questions. ‘I don’t know’ can sometimes be a more interesting answer.”
