John Nixon—Four Decades, Five Hundred Prints
Printmaking was a vital part of artist John Nixon’s celebrated oeuvre of abstract art. This first comprehensive print survey reveals Nixon's inventive use of varied techniques, which ranged from simple woodcuts and potato prints, to more complex screenprints, stone lithographs and etchings. True to the experimental spirit of his art, Nixon freely bent printmaking convention, for example by using collage, or by printing his abstract motifs onto everyday objects such as paper bags or newspapers.
