Paul Edmunds The same but different 2000

  • Not on view

Edmunds, a sculptor known for his labor-intensive, methodical approach to found objects, also experiments with the systematic processes of printmaking. Here a single uninterrupted line is a pulsating, hypnotic meditation on the process of incising a linoleum block. The print was commissioned by Johannesburg-based artist and curator Clive van den Berg, who organized a series of annual exhibitions, titled Self (2000–2002), that explored oversize linocut printing by artists who had rarely or never used the technique before.

Gallery label from Impressions from South Africa, 1965 to Now, March 23–August 14, 2011.
