ASU to Host Computer Print Artist Gallery
Scott Frish, an associate professor of printmaking at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, will bring his art to Angelo State University’s Gallery 193 in the Carr Education-Fine Arts Building, 2602 Dena Drive, beginning Monday, Aug. 23, and running through September.
The lithographic, serigraphic and intaglio hand-pulled prints are generated in the design stage on a computer to give the viewer the impression of an artist’s touch applied to paper. An advocate of imagistic art, Frish argues that what an image shows eclipses how it was produced when capturing the attention of the viewer. He produces his works using a complicated process involving multiple layers of images which move through steps to the final print.
Frish draws on his own past, such as living on the Pacific Northwest coast and coming to West Texas, and relates it to the present for inspiration in his art. In one print, he equates the importance of water in both places through an image of a water tower on the West Texas plains.
Frish will also make a class presentation about his work at ASU in late September.
