Alexis Nutini is Very Printeresting

Primordial Ink Is Reviewed

The blog that covers all things printmaking points out what makes Nutini’s recent show worth noting

In the review of the show, Emmons goes into great detail expressing what makes Nutini’s work different and noteworthy.  For example, Emmon’s describes Nutini’s mark making:

Between the overlapping systems of description, and the radical color shifts, a viewers field of vision quickly moves between the impression of an overall ‘image’, and the evidence of how it was made. Employing tight linear layers, cross-hatched marks, and weird, interlocking abstract shapes, Nutini has built an aesthetic trap that draws you in and keeps you trolling the surface. At about the moment you feel that you eyes might pop-out of your head, you drift up to the placid ‘sky’, and the whole process starts over again.

Amze Emmons finishes his review by saying that he “look[s] forward to seeing more bold work from this philadelphia-based artist,” and we at NAPOLEON do, too.
