Gallery Talk Cut to Form: Idiosyncrasies of Woodcut Printmaking
with Rachel Boesenberg, USD senior exhibition co-curator

Due to both its simplicity and adaptability, the woodcut has remained one of the most appealing methods of printmaking. This exhibition explores the variety—indeed the idiosyncrasies—inherent in the woodcut printmaking process. Artists represented include masters of Renaissance printmaking such as Albrecht Dürer, modern and contemporary masters like DeLoss McGraw and Harry Sternberg, and USD undergraduate students working to exploit this art form for its flexibility in terms of scale, subject, and style. Both the historical and contemporary examples demonstrate the enduring capacity of woodcut printmaking to describe, express, delight, and confound.
