Represent the Work: Five new etchings by Matt Mullican

Crown Point Press announces the release of five new color etchings by Matt Mullican. “Represent the work. This is my work. That’s what this is,” Mullican said during his first project at Crown Point Press in early January, 2020. The work is presented in the five large prints that he completed during two weeks in the Crown Point studio.
Mullican uses signs, symbols and colors as a system of order to illustrate the relationship between the actual world and its representation, and to make sense of the world that is around us. Since the 1970s, he has created a body of work encompassing drawings, collage, photography, rubbings, sculpture, prints, and installations. The Crown Point Gallery exhibition includes the artist’s preparatory drawings, working proofs and ephemera presented together with the five new etchings in a layout designed by Mullican.
