The Detroit Artists Market is pleased to present Abstraction and Landscape: Contemporary Woodcut, a group exhibition of six international, national and local printmakers including Stamps alumna Amanda Lilleston (MFA 2012). Curated by Endi Poskovic, Professor of Art and Design at Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan, this dynamic, season-opening exhibition seeks to reveal the 19th-century Romantic landscape tradition of Northern Europe as the origin of modern abstraction, a premise set forth in the 1970s essays by renowned American art historian and professor, Robert Rosenblum (1927−2006). The artists in this exhibition explore themes of memory, the sublime, deity, transformation, revival, intimations of mortality, as well as ideas about nationality, displacement, and reconciliation. The exhibition includes groupings of large prints, individual prints, artists’ books, as well as a three-dimensional work suspended from above.
Abstraction and Landscape: Contemporary Woodcut coincides with the panel Abstraction and Landscape: Contemporary Woodcut organized and chaired by Endi Poskovic for Print City: Detroit 2014 (Sept. 24 – 27), the biennial conference of the Mid-America Print Council, held this year on the Wayne State University campus.
