Dan Wood (Critic, Printmaking) was recently interviewed as Artist of the Month for the Paper Connection newsletter.
The interview discusses Wood’s letterpress printing process and a visit from Paper Connection to one of his RISD classes. “For paper, and prints in general, I like the fact there is a certain amount of permanence, the idea the paper once printed is now a record of that earlier process,” Wood said. “It has some depth and dimension when printing via letterpress, but not nearly as much as the plates or type that went into making it. There is also a delicateness, and fragility, in contrast to the greasy messy machines that it is surrounded by, and somehow, they both come out ok.”
