August 4: The Ink Shop

The Ink Shop 330 E State St


Andrew Kosten | Hideout

Hideout will feature traditional lithographic prints produced by Andrew Kosten. His work explores figurative metaphor and landscape narratives within a satirical context. They include the influence of the corrupt over the unsuspecting, the hilarity and whimsical nature of the human psyche, and the function of the individual in relation to their culture or environment.

Andrew Kosten currently resides in Brookings, South Dakota and specializes in intaglio and lithographic print media through his own print shop and studio, Gum Pal Press. His work has been shown in national and international juried exhibitions and is featured in numerous public and private collections


Anna Pausch | Muse

After traveling abroad in South-East Asia and earning a BFA in Printmaking and Fibers from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston; Anna has joined the Ink Shop as our newest Printmaker Associate. She has immediately begun work for this show, Muse.

In Muse, Anna meditates – questioning the relationship between her ever-shifting present, and the mournful and joyous past through the series of 15-25 en plein air and inspired landscape intaglio prints and paintings. She pulls both inspiration and comfort from past works such as Rembrandt’s Intaglio Landscapes; those created specifically after his wife’s death in 1642. Landscape as her subject matter, allows her to surrender to the structures and renderings of light in search of that pivotal moment within “the eye of a hurricane,” with similar delicateness and even somber atmosphere reflective of Rembrandt’s prints.
