John Zurier

October 4 (Blue), 2017

The soft ground etchings from Zurier’s October series (2017) were influenced by the experimental prints of the Dutch artist Hercules Seghers (1589–1638), one of the most innovative and prolific print makers of his time. Seghers’ experimental printmaking practice involved pulling prints in different colours from one matrix, producing highly diverse versions of the same motive. Referencing this strategy, Zurier had his four plates printed both in a colour and in a grey version.
