Push Pull Print III – Jonathan Hertzel

Jonathan is a three time returning artist to the Push Pull Print screen printed art show. For those of you who are new to the show I started this idea about 2 years ago where I wanted to take artists and/or creative people who are not necessarily screen print artists and work with them in converting their art into screen prints. For me I wanted to bring a renewed life back into screen printing. I’ve been at it for over 20 years and it has become my business. My business of making money and doing what other people want me to do. I needed to rejuvenate my love for the craft I had seemed to be losing grip of over the last few years from doing the same thing day in and day out. And this time I want to work with creative minds. People who are in the game not necessarily for the money, but for a driving passion to create. I like ideas.

I get the impression that Jonathan likes to explore. Explore shape, movement, the existence of mass and the non-existence of mass. Working with Jonathan and his energetic take on creation of mark making and mass offers us soooo many ideas. I can feel as if I am dropped in the middle of the idea with the problem to solve of where does it go and/or where has it been? His screen prints resemble his brush mark which resemble his sculpture. It’s a transposing discovery of dimensions that just leaves me in the middle. I am wondering where does mass begin and where does mass end? It seems apparent on one isolated screen print, but what happens when we introduce his other bodies of work? I begin to wonder and create the ideas of WHERE does this 3 dimensional sculpture simplify it’s form and become a print?
