San Francisco based artist Jill Storthz will exhibit a series of wood block prints that are each carved from a single block the Japanese basswood, Shina. The method Storthz uses to create these prints is reductive, also called “suicide method” as there is a single one block of wood used and no “going back” in the event that a mistake is made. These prints are often unique or run in a very small edition of two or three. When the print is finished, Storthz is left with a hollowed out piece of wood so that the same image could never be reprinted. Jill Storthz was born inLittle Rock, AK in 1978 and earned a B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute in Chicagoin 2000. This will be Jill’s first exhibition in Texas.
