Winter Art Exhibit
Linocut Printmaking by Jonathan Marquardt
Hinsdale native Jonathan Marquardt is a painter and printmaker currently living in Waunakee, Wisconsin. He enjoys hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and fly fishing with his family in Wisconsin’s stream-filled Driftless region.
This exhibit shows his skill with the linocut medium. Some of the work is single color, meaning it was carved once and printed, while some of the work is multi-colored and is the result of a reduction printing process wherein the block is sequentially carved and printed. Each piece in the exhibit is original and hand-carved and hand-printed using a barren rather than a press.
