We are featuring woodblock artist, Endi Poskovic. His bold graphic prints explore ideas of displacement and memory. You can view these works in person at Gallery 72 or browse them online here. Plus we'll be open First Friday, May 3 until 8:00 p.m.
Through the representation of familiar imagery my work proposes a range of eventualities, from hybridized narratives to unexpected scenarios, invoking a sense of place and time, and exploring ideas about displacement, memory and reconciliation. A critical element in many of my relief prints is the placement of invented phrases and words that are cut in wood, placed and printed below the images. Created in actual and/or faux Romance and Germanic languages, the captions contribute to interpretations that may simultaneously appear to be real and fictitious, rational and absurd. The intersection of the image and the written word in my prints reinforces the act of reading the two in a single context as a source of unlimited interpretive possibilities.
