Matthais Mansen: Configurations

Categorized as: Museums & Exhibits, Art & Galleries
Event tags:


Matthias Mansen is a contemporary Berlin-based artist (b. 1958) whose work advances the long tradition of woodblock printing. Mansen masterfully layers printings from multiple blocks, sometimes employing “ghost prints” to achieve delicate modulations of tonal intensity and texture. Concerned with process nearly as much as final product, Mansen works on numerous prints simultaneously and progressively carves and recarves his blocks. His projects are best exhibited in an ensemble, which allows the grammar and rhythms of his repeated cognate arrangements and consonant forms to become tangible.
