Peri Schwartz and Greg Burnet Collaboration

One of the gallery’s contemporary printmakers, Peri Schwartz, has just finished a collaboration with printmaker Greg Burnet– developing a gorgeous spit-bite aquatint titled Bottles & Jars III. The production company Kings in the Back Row filmed their artistic process and collaboration. The resulting video offers unique, behind-the-scenes access into a printmaker’s studio. Watch as the two printmakers discuss and mix color palates, decide on tonal values, and pull proof after proof, until they get it just right. This beautiful, short video shows the benefits you can reap when you have a harmonious union of two creative minds working towards one pursuit. Truly inspiring!

Thank you Peri for sharing a glimpse into your “day-to-day” as a printmaker. To see and purchase available prints by Peri Schwartz, click here.

New Additions: Matt Brown Color Woodcuts

NEW ADDITIONS banner

NEW ADDITIONSContemporary printmaker Matt Brown dropped off more prints at The Old Print Gallery last week, and we are very excited by his new work. Brown works in the traditional Japanese hanga method to create his stunning color landscapes- cutting and inking a different block for each color used in his prints.

“I love the process of making these prints: the way pictorial simplicity is encouraged, the way an image is separated into parts and put back together, the way the translucent colors blend and juxtapose, the way the wood interacts with the paper.”- Matt Brown
