Holoweski Cooper 03

Cooper Holoweski (BFA 2004) has won the Prix de Print in the May/​June edi­tion of the jour­nal Art in Print for his print series Recent Antiq­ui­ties.” The Prix de Print is a bimonthly com­pe­ti­tion in which a sin­gle work is selected by an out­side juror to be the sub­ject of a brief essay.

This iter­a­tion of the Art in Print Prix de Print was judged by Paul Cold­well, Pro­fes­sor in Fine Art at the Uni­ver­sity of the Arts London. 

In the series Recent Antiq­ui­ties (2016), Cooper Holoweski fol­lows the tra­di­tion of artists who have taken ear­lier art­works as start­ing points for new ones. One imme­di­ately thinks of Roy Lichtenstein’s Cathe­dral lith­o­graphs made in 1969, based on Monet’s paint­ings of the façade of Rouen Cathe­dral from the 1890s, or David Hockney’s free inter­pre­ta­tion of A Rake’s Progress, in which Hogarth’s engrav­ings were trans­posed from 18th-cen­tury Lon­don to Amer­ica in the 1960s.
