Spotlight Series – INKED AND PULLED: In Memoriam by Justyne Fischer

Thursday, April 15 - Wednesday, June 30

Justyne Fischer’s INKED AND PULLED: In Memoriam is the second virtual exhibition in our Spotlight Series, as we celebrate nearly ten years of Hill Center Galleries.

Justyne Fischer’s woodcuts depart from the usual associations we make with traditional printmaking processes. Without the aid of a press, she burnishes and hand pulls compositions onto sheer fabric. As light passes through the image, the layered fabric creates intentional moirés, optical movement and illumination. Fischer’s woodcuts feature “Social Memorials” of unjust events involving unarmed Black men, women and boys. The Charleston 9, Terrence Crutcher, Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis and are all featured in these graphic political statements. Each piece is meant to point out the tragic absurdity of each event while memorializing the human being beyond a one-day headline.
