Peri Schwartz

Jars I, 2017

We’re so thrilled to continue working with Peri as she successfully explores the boundaries of printmaking with exquisite results. This most recent limited edition was published in June 2017. I’m not the only one who loves it. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has included in their Art for Printing exhibition and museum shop. It is a great example of her exceptional handling of space, color and form.

Bill Durgin

pdn presents “The Curator”
“FIGURE GROUND”
GRAND PRIZE, BROOKLYN

“Figure Ground” refers to the principle of Gestalt psychology that a figure is perceived through its distinction from the background. To create each image, Durgin layers and erases several photos from a single shoot to blur the boundary between figure and background. The series “challenges ideas of perception and image consumption,” he writes. “In this age of seamlessly altered and composite images, ‘Figure Ground’ brings the idea of image composite to the forefront, making the act of alteration the figure itself.”
