Visiting Artist: Shaye Remba
October 11 @ 9:00 am
Shaye Remba is the Director of the Mixografia Workshop in Los Angeles, CA. Mixografia is somewhat unique in that it has developed techniques for creating 3 dimensional prints out of cast paper processes. As the Mixografia® printing technique has developed and evolved, it has been able to produce increasingly complex works of art that have come to redefine the category of “print.” The versatility of the Mixografia® prints allows artists greater conceptual possibilities, greater creative freedom and possibility. Because of the quality and adaptability of the processes, the artist’s ideas are not constrained in the way they would be while working with a strictly two-dimensional medium. Artists have the potential to think in an entirely innovative way with the option to render materials on a print on paper. Mixografia has produced over 600 unique editions by 89 artists and has exhibited pieces at institutions around the world including Staadliche Kunsthalle, Berlin; Instituto de Arte Contemporáneo, Lima; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles; Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City; Georgia Museum of Art, Athens and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
This visiting artist talk is part of the 5th Rocky Mountain Printmaking Alliance Symposium, Transposing Attitudes. Contemporary printmaking crosses many boundaries as it seeks to transform and realize a multitude of ideas. This symposium seeks to create a dialogue on the transformative nature of contemporary approaches to printmaking; through the exploration of new techniques, innovative directions and concepts, or the creation of new avenues of dissemination.Please share:
