Last Friday I stopped at the house of Vijay Kumar, a printmaker and teacher in Brooklyn, to leave some of my work with him. He’s co-curating a group show of prints by both American and Indian artists, “Multiple Encounters Second Edition.” This will open in New Delhi at the Lalit Kala Akademi on January 23, 2012.
I’m pleased, naturally.
Pleased for the inclusion in general, and pleased because he chose two prints I made as part of a series of responses to writings by Quakers. This project was a passionate one for me three years ago but has not been seen much.
There are five pairs of prints. Each pair has an intial simple line etching, and then a second state of that line etching mounted on a digital print that I also made.
The first state is shown here. It is “Happy the Place,” 8.5 inches square. I will post the second state soon.
The show will travel to other parts of India and then perhaps to some locations in the U.S. It would be so interesting to see this show – prints by 60 artists from each of the two countries involved.
