JUROR'S STATEMENT

"I selected the pieces that inspired me the most. They were the ones that showed the broadest range of possibilities of what printmaking can be. They were the ones that triggered full scenarios in my mind in a single frame without the use of words. They were techniques brilliantly executed. They were stories well told and emotions deeply expressed." -Willie Cole

Juror
Willie Cole

Throughout our 68 year history The Boston Printmakers has upheld the highest traditional standards in the field of printmaking, while continually looking toward the future, by embracing innovative and diverse contemporary printmaking media and methods.  Willie Cole, as juror for the 2015 North American Printmaking Biennial, is a refection of those values. Mr. Cole, an inventive printmaker, has work in the permanent collections of MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum as well as scores of international public and private collections. That he works in many media including found object sculpture, drawing and painting in addition to lithography, woodcut and digital printmaking reflects the inclusiveness of printmaking by artists today. Dennis Michael Jon, juror of the 2013 Biennial, stated: “Prints are frequently segregated from other forms of art…[reflecting] an implicit devaluing of the print medium...the perception of printmaking as a cohesive and independent discipline seems to be facing increased scrutiny, especially among younger contemporary artists, for whom cross-disciplinary experimentation and technical innovation can be fundamental to their expression.” The Boston Printmakers is confident that Mr. Cole’s expertise and far ranging interests will contribute to the goal of promoting printmaking as relevant, innovative and noteworthy, placing it front and center in the world of contemporary art.
