Combining the process of printmaking and burning as a drawing method, Heartwood
is Kathleen Kucka
’s second print project at the Russell Janis Studio
. Kucka regularly uses burning in her studio practice to mark canvas. This spring, Kathleen applied burn mark-making to plywood creating a matrix to be printed. Using the woodgrain as a representation of heartwood, the structural support at the center of a tree, this materiality began a new interaction and opportunity to explore color, repetition and scale. Please join us for an exhibition of these works created here at the Russell Janis studio.
