Consistent with all New Prints exhibitions thus far, New Prints 2004/ Autumn includes work from a wide range of artists and presses across the country. This show also includes prints by artists living in Austria, Norway and South Africa. Countless possibilities in printmaking are illustrated in the exhibition. There are numerous large-scale prints, such as Willie Cole's sixfoot tall Silex Male: Rit11a/, created at the Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper in New Brunswick, NJ; and Jennifer Yorke's Have More (Blonde), a site-specific much largerthan-life installation of inkjet printed images of blonde hair on silk. There are also surprises from familiar names, such as a relief print by sculptor Tom Friedman created at Island Press in Missouri; and Gnosticisms, an artist's book of lithographs, the first limited edition artist's book made by poet Anne Carson, created at the Innovative Print Centre at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Among the more unconventional works included in the exhibition are Austrian artist Heimo Wallner's risque silkcreens on ceramic tiles, and Q54 Spell, an extravagantly busy inkjet print filled with juxtaposed pop cultural images by South African artist Malcolm Payne.
