The latest artist to work at DKW is Ryan Arenson. Working form drawings and wood engravings, Arenson is interpreting these images using a variety of printing techniques in order to create mixed-media prints. He has already been working on etchings, engravings, linocut works as well as using wood engravings and the pochoir technique to create the prints.
The circle is the recurring motif in this new body of work, as can be seen from the above images. These dense circle drawings fill Ryan’s imagery, which consists of two primary figures: a male god-like figure taken from a work by Durer, and an image of a girl by Picasso.
Ryan has also been working on artist’s books which make up this body of work, however it is still to be decided whether these will be displayed as books or whether the pages will be removed and shown as a sort of mural.
Ryan will be back in the studio for part of next week, it will be interesting to see how the work develops during this time.
