New Additions to the AP/RC: Craig Mindell matrices

Craig Mindell recently donated over 120 woodcut matrices. Mindell usually prints his images using three color separations, one wood matrix per color. These matrices span some 30 years and, as a result, one can follow the arc of Mindell’s skill and sensitivity to the process over a long period. He also uses a unique approach to carving. Whenever possible, the woodcuts, executed on cost efficient plywoods, are carved with the grain in long and short lines, creating vertical textures in his work. The parallel lines add visual noise and vibration, energizing the images and down-sizing the resolution of his pictures as if snatched from a memory.
