“During my time in the Print Studio of the Lyndon House this summer I have ambitious plans to develop several bodies of work concurrently, all of which relate directly to my interest in print as a means of creating a unique image. In a suite of cut-paper monotypes, I intend to explore shape and color relationships as they relate directly to several of my recent works on canvas. Additionally, I will be utilizing monotype and relief processes to add layers and depth to some larger-format works on paper in that are in progress”  -Brian Hitselberger
Brian’s residency is supported by a faculty grant from Piedmont College.
Open studio visits available to the public will be scheduled throughout the summer to share the working process in this creative activity.
