JACOB HORWOOD | DETAIL WITHOUT A DRAWING BOARD
SATURDAY 07 JANUARY 2012 SATURDAY 21 JULY 2012
OPENING RECEPTION | FRIDAY 06 JANUARY 2012, 8:00PM – 10:00PM
Jacob Horwood developed this series of screenprinted one and two-off pieces with little emphasis on design. He wished to demystify the idea that in screenprinting, a piece of art is first designed in its entirety, and then produced. The execution of the work and its composition is completed almost entirely in the studio by the artist. This stresses the practice itself, relying on trial and error, as well as color harmony to create new work. Detail Without a Drawing Board is a more spontaneous practice, and utilized as little source material as possible.
JACOB HORWOOD is a Toronto-based visual artist who works in printmaking, publishing, and sound art. In 2004, he co-founded the experimental sound art record label Beniffer Editions. It has released over 110 hand-made artist multiples on various formats, including LPs, books, box-sets and cassettes. Horwood is the administrator of Punchclock Printing and works as a specialty screen printer, assisting other artists and designers interested in the full realization of their ideas. He is also one-half of music concrete duo Gastric Female Reflex, who have released music and toured internationally. Horwood’s work is informed by process based painting techniques applied to screen-printing, visual after image demonstrations, re-appropriation, and artist multiple presentation.
