New AP/RC Artist: Judy Youngblood

The AP/RC received a generous donation from the artist of 46 original drypoints and linocuts that date from 2000 to 2010.

Like a variety of printmakers who use relief matrices, Judy Youngblood tends toward printing combinations or select elements of matrices, varying colors of ink, and creating an ever-changing flow of imagery. On occasion she combines numerous individually printed images to create large installations. For example, her 9×23 foot image, Wintery Mix, 2013-14, is composed of dozens of separate prints

Youngblood also works in intaglio. Whatever her print medium  of choice, her imagery from the last several decades tends to explore changing weather patterns with particular emphases on storms, rain, wind, and bodies of water. Selected works, like Wavering Front #2, 2003-04 (see image below), reflect her penchant for visual references to 19th century Japanese relief printmaking.

Youngblood lives and works in Dallas, Texas. She is a Professor Emerita of Art at the University of North Texas, Denton where she taught printmaking and book arts. See her web site at:
