Print It Up 2019: 7th Annual Printmaking Exhibition in Taller Space

Death has a strong presence among artist’s concepts and expression. In the printmaking arts, topics about death have been present in the Mexican broadsheets and in Europe during the Middle Ages. Artists see death as a form of escapism and vent out their social and political views. For example, Kathe Kollwitz relied on death to explain the atrocities of war, and Jose Guadalupe Posada used skeletons to represent equality as a social status. This group of students from University of Texas at San Antonio celebrates
death in their own conceptual and expressive interpretation. Relief is used to embrace the tradition of
printmaking and to disseminate ideas.
