Chris Chandler: LINEAR–REVERSE

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 25 2020

LINEAR — REVERSE exhibits relief monoprint works made by Chris Chandler taking advantage of his Vandercook 232P with a 30” x 32” printing bed to experiment with the modular Alpha-Blox font in large form. Alpha-Blox was created as a movable font by the American Type Founder in 1944 and was sold to printers as an alternative to the usual restrictions of lead type fonts. The font never took-off with popularity, but being attracted to the creative possibilities, Chandler took the Alpha-Blox type to create large-scale woodcut versions of the complete set of the modular system.
