Printmaker, John Shultz Visits

John Schulz, artist/printmaker who teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, gave a great lecture and showed prints to students in the printshop. He was a 2015 Counterproof Press visiting artist. Schulz worked with Counterproof Press to create and edition a suite of five wonderful letterpress prints.

Turning to cast-off images from books, magazines, comics, catalogues, and printed detritus, Jon Schulz’s work investigates and transforms common symbols and images from the “low” end of visual culture via chance operations, cut-ups, and an ironic visual language, conveying a sense of loss and psychic anxiety that reflects the uncertainty of memory and contemporary life.
