The Southern Graphics Council annual conference hosts a number of themed portfolio exhibitions, curated by a roster of amazing international artists. “Printmaking as Partnership”, curated by Zach Clark, is a portfolio exchange centered around the value and strength of the collaborative process in printmaking, including work by 15 printmakers and their collaborators.
Andrew Ackerman and I worked together to create print that explores the dichotomy of structure and surface. As a sculptor, Andrew’s work is structural, almost architectural, while my work is illustrative, based on flat shapes, pattern, and surface texture. Using these different approaches to designing images, we composed an image that explores the harmony and discord in natural and built spaces.
