Wood, Aluminum, Copper: Toru Sugita, Jenny Robinson, David Avery

posted by on 2018.04.01, under Uncategorized

Toru Sugita, a printmaker and painter originally from Japan, is actively showing his artwork throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, and Latin America. He works mostly with images with strong architectural elements. Toru is known for his black and white intaglio and wood engraving prints with strong architectural elements. His prints can be found in various public collections including the Achenbach Foundation of Graphic Arts in the Fine Art Museum of San Francisco. Toru is also known as the illustrator of award-winning book “Floating Lanterns and Golden Shrines.” 
Jenny Robinson’s work has always been informed by her immediate environment, where she live, works and goes has a direct impact on the subject matter she is drawn to. After moving from London to San Francisco in 2001, she became fascinated by structures displaying a sense of strength and energy, but ignored, threatened by the passage of time to ultimate defeat by corrosion and decay. Her work is concerned with depicting how these giant structures appear, not through a sense of romantic yearning for the past, but by responding to location and documenting how they appear to her, now, in the moment.  
David Avery continues to exploit the constraints inherent in black and white line etching at his studio in San Francisco. His work is included in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, the New York Public Library, the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, the Stanford University Library among others, and has been noted in the New York Times. Even though “black and white doesn’t sell”, he has eschewed the use of color, finding the subtleties and tonalities of black and white most capable of creating the psychological mood that allows his work to be effective.
