On Wednesday, April 8, at 7:00 p.m., artist Catherine Nelson presents “Curiouser and Curiouser!"
Catherine Nelson is an artist delving into the intersection of printmaking, drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. Her work is motivated by a sense of wonder at the everyday: a hole in a wall gives way to a wild cave, a crack in the sidewalk morphs into a nebula in another galaxy, sap crawling down a tree gives way to a volcanic eruption. She likes making big things small and small things big. Her prints build up through improvisation with materials, leveraging the power of printmaking to repeat and expand on imagery. Nelson also hand-prints a monthly zine called “Puncture” to experiment with and trade new ideas. Currently she is exploring how movement in a drawing can shape a book. She lives and works in New Orleans.
Catherine Nelson will talk about her experimental prints and artists’ books.
Krupp + Nelson continues through April 10, 2015. This exhibition is part of the 2014 Call for entries program. This project is made possible through the support of the Friends of the Print and Picture Collection and the Robert F. Looney Fund.
