The Print Center (Philadelphia) Presents A Portfolio Of Prints, "The Leisure Pool Suite," By Kristen Martincic
The Print Center (1614 Latimer St., Philadelphia) is set to offer a new portfolio of prints from Kristen Martincic. The pieces,
collectively titled, The Leisure Pool Suite, are of six woodcuts and an H20 Pool Float.
These prints have, as subjects, aerial views of backyard swimming pools. These pools are divorced from their natural surroundings. Glancing
at the work the viewer might figure out the subject immediately--or think of other meanings to these shapes. The prints seems a great purchase to
start the summer (and then you can look at them in the winter and sigh).
The series, and individual prints from the series, are available exclusively from The Print Shop. If you opt for the complete set it comes in a
box handcrafted by Martincic.
You can see more by (and read more about) the artist at kmartincic.com. Her work has been shown all over the USA and also at the American University in
