A series of five prints by Anderson University Art+Design Department Chair and Professor of Art, Kevin Rudynski, titled “Not Just Words” are currently being featured on For Print Only, a print design blog run by the graphic design organization UnderConsideration.
Each image in the series is a four-color, letterpress print composed through an experimental exploration of text and imagery. They were created by layering the printing plates in various orders to achieve complex combinations of color and texture.
In his review of Rudynski’s work, author Duncan Robertson writes, “The experimentation and creative process for this impressive series of letterpress broadsheets carried on beyond the digital design phase and into the printing production phase of the project, during which Kevin Rudynski tried various plate sequences to get the desired effects. The resulting colors and compositions have chaotic, punk, postmodern, attention-grabbing qualities reminiscent of lost generation artwork from between WWI and WWII, and punk creations from the 1980s-90s.
Professor Rudynski’s work will be on display this fall as part of the upcoming Faculty Exhibition at the start of the 2013-2014 school year.
