Letterpress Prints by David Wolske

Presented by Finch Lane Gallery at the Art Barn at Finch Lane Gallery at the Art Barn

letterpress artist David Wolske exhibits his prints based on the letters W-O-R-D. The exhibition titled Vessels will be shown in the Park Gallery at the The Art Barn.

For Wolske, the beauty of words stems from the inherent potential for a series of straight and curved strokes from each letter to come together in countless configurations to create infinite meanings. The shape of the letters becomes the tool for the artist. To capture the beauty of letters, Wolske developed a printing technique that he calls an “isotype,” wherein parts of letters are masked off to isolate their linear and artistic components. The colored prints are then rearranged, reassembled, and layered to compose abstract “phrases” and “paragraphs” that celebrate linguistic malleability.
