Maria Neil presents A Curated Selection of Natural Elements from Here and Abroad
Deborah Pinter’s ethereal flora and otherworldly plant matter will grace the walls of Maria Neil Art Project and help usher in Spring. Monochromatic prints showcasing depth and structure hearken back to her ‘Scanagram’ photography on silver gelatin paper. The flashiness of her subject matter is now replaced with heavy black inks and articulated impressions which help guide the viewer into her natural wonderland. What started as a project in her native Cleveland has progressed and expanded across the Atlantic Ocean where she worked in Dresden, Germany.
Photographer and Printmaker Deborah Pinter was the latest recipient of Zygote Press’ month-long Dresden Exchange Residency. This exchange is the longest-running program not only at Zygote Press, but also in the state of Ohio. Funded by the Ohio Arts Council and the City of Dresden, the exchange lets artists from Ohio and Dresden become acquainted with the art and artists of another community, provides time for the artists to explore the printmaking resources available in those communities, and continues to strengthen artistic relationships between both locations.
