More a printmaker than a sculptor: S.V. Medaris

Carcasses from "The Meat Locker," S.V. Medaris, 2011. Woodcut on masa, adhered to insulation board, hooks, and wire, edition of four. 96 x 48 inches (each). Printed and published by the artist.

Continuing my theme from yesterday and the day before, here is another work from the New Prints 2011 exhibition, S.V. Medaris’s, Carcasses from “The Meat Locker.” It’s a bummer I didn’t get a very good photo.

Great use of multiples here. A statement concerning art as a commodity?

Check it out, Medaris also has a great WordPress blog.

  1. His work makes me think of much of the more politically charged work that comes out of a show in WI put on by Marshfield Clinic called Art and Agriculture. It also makes me think of those lush paintings by Soutine.

  2. I was in that show with her. It’s too bad I didn’t make the opening, but I have the catalogue so I should go back and visit it.
