One of my WetCanvas! printmaking buddies has recently created a new blog called "So What's on Your Plate?" where he plans to post interviews of contemporary printmaking artists.
“So What’s On Your Plate?” will feature bimonthly interviews of inspiring printmakers, working in various printmaking media. It is intended, first and foremost, to inspire and inform printmakers and potential printmakers. It must also provide exposure of the interviewed artists to an audience that may be interested in their artwork or services - buyers, collectors, reviewers, galleries, and students. And finally, it should inform the public regarding printmaking.
The first interview is of Erik Waterkotte, whose work Rick recently viewed at the SNAP gallery in Edmonton, Alberta. It's an extremely interesting look into Waterkotte's processes, inspirations and image development, and a very good read. Thanks Rick for the great new blog to keep an eye on!
