Martin Puryear Prints: 1962-2016


Friday, September 8, 2017 - 11:00am - Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 6:00pm
The Print Center, 1614 Latimer Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
United States
The Print Center is delighted to present an exhibition, guest curated by Ruth Fine, in conjunction with the Association for Public Art's installation of Puryear's temporary monumental work Big Bling.
The forms explored in Puryear's sculpture, often rooted in nature, are equally powerful in his prints, the creation of which has been sporadic. As evident in this exhibition, Puryear's most expansive bodies of prints date to the 1960s, and again to the 2000s. During these past two decades, his productivity in printmaking has been extensive, emphasizing the most tactile of the print processes: woodcut, a relief  process and the various etching (intaglio) techniques.
