 Jeanine Coupe Ryding: Coda for the Day

Open February 23 through June 3, 2019

Illinois State Museum Second Floor Gallery

 

This exhibition presents a selection of relief prints, artist books and collages from the last 10 years by Evanston artist Jeanine Coupe Ryding. Ryding is best known for her richly layered, inventive, and often monumental, woodcut prints. Her forms and color record her observations of nature and of daily life, described in her expressive gestural cutting into the wood block plate. "I am often thinking of a three dimensional shape and then describing it as I carve the block," the artist writes in her statement. Ryding exploits the difficult medium of woodblock carving to create a wide range of calligraphic and seemingly effortless energetic lines and shapes. Her work is a meditation on the dynamic tension between object and ground, stillness and movement.

 

The exhibition will feature 25 large scale prints, 5 artist books and 8 collages. Jeanine Coupe Rydings' prints and artist's books are in museums and private collections throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. In addition to her art, which focuses primarily on woodcut prints, etchings, artist's books, drawing, and collage, she has also founded both Shadow Press and Press 928 in Evanston, Illinois, for fine art publishing. She received her BA from The University of Iowa and her MFA from Universitat der Kunste, Berlin, Germany. Her work has earned prestigious awards such as the Illinois Arts Council Award, and she has had residencies at Arts Midwest, the Frans Masereel Center in Belgium, and at Anchor Graphics in Chicago. She's also been teaching as an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Print Media Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1991.

 

The Illinois State Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon until 4:30 p.m. Museum admission: $5 for adults ages 19-64; free admission for Members, youth, seniors, military, and veterans.
