Johns and Lund: Masters in the print studio


By NATALIA BAAGE-LORD
Jasper Johns and John Lund created “Bushbaby” in 2004.
 

With its new exhibit, the Katonah Museum of Art showcases the rare, creative relationship between printer Jasper Johns and master printer John Lund.

The show, “Jasper Johns and John Lund: Masters in the Print Studio,” is on display until June 15.

The two formed a relationship in 1973 in Long Island when Mr. Lund helped Mr. Johns, a veteran artist, finalize his pieces. The show explores their printing process and highlights their artworks created together over the years.

“It’s an untold story and a fascinating one too,” said Ellen Keiter, the museum’s exhibitions director. “This story needed to be told. It looks at the fascinating collaboration between these two great artists.”

The exhibit focuses on the relationship between Mr. Johns and Mr. Lund and how they created together. Their relationship was unique, Ms. Keiter said. Most print artists usually travel to different master printers around the world, but Mr. Johns stayed with Mr. Lund for nearly four decades.

“It was special,” Ms. Keiter said, “Lund has an intuitive understanding of what Johns is looking for and what his final intent is. This is really giving our visitors an intimate insider’s look at their studio and process. I hope audiences feel that they’re getting a glimpse into a rarified world.”

Mr. Johns and Mr. Lund created approximately 70 pieces together. The exhibit showcases 58 of them, which are positioned chronologically from 1973 to 2012. Ms. Keiter said this is the first time their ensemble works are being shown together.

“The exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the collaborative nature of the printmaking process,” said Darsie Alexander, the museum’s executive director, “which involves two individuals coming together to turn an idea into a reality.”

In Mr. Johns’ prints, he often highlights vibrant colors, repetition and iconography. While Mr. Johns creates the artistic images, Mr. Lund, as the master printer, is vital to making the final image.

“For Johns and Lund, the results are technically complex and visually arresting prints filled with intertwined layers of color and image,” Ms. Alexander said. “The exhibition allows us to understand the process behind these great works without diminishing their extraordinary mystery and power.”

Throughout his career, Mr. Johns has been a “famously private person,” said Ms. Keiter. The show will reveal to audiences a sense of how he creates his art. Printmaking is a complicated and difficult process, and the exhibit will also spotlight Mr. Lund’s expertise.

“Jasper Johns is a very thoughtful artist, and he’s very meticulous,” Ms. Keiter said. “This is a beautiful show. Johns does not talk about his work much. He definitely leaves it open to interpretation.”

In most of his art, Mr. Johns uses plenty of repetition, especially to display important motives. Ms. Keiter said that he often uses the same icons several times in a number of his prints. However, Mr. Johns does not use the exact same icon every time. Instead, he constructs it differently, reversing it or somehow changing its aesthetics.

“Even though it’s similar, it makes everything different,” Ms. Keiter said, referring to artwork’s connections.

On April 6, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., audiences are invited to meet Mr. Lund and join him and Ms. Keiter for a “curator’s tour” of the exhibit. While strolling through the galleries, Mr. Lund will share his experiences working with Mr. Johns.

Also on April 6, prior to Mr. Lund’s visit, the museum will hold a program titled “All About Prints and Printmaking.”

In “Print Collecting with an Expert,” 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Artnet specialist Conner Williams will discuss the best ways to accumulate art, how to tell a piece’s value and what pieces are worthy of collection.

“Technology Overlay: State of the Art Meets Time-Tested Techniques” takes place from 2 to 3 p.m. with master-printer Pepe Coronado, who will demonstrate how traditional printing techniques have mixed with digital techniques.

On May 15, at 7:30 p.m., Mr. Lund will visit the museum again for a panel discussion called “The Art of Collaboration.” He will be joined by Wendy Weitman, the former print curator of the Museum of Modern Art, and Bill Goldston, the director of Universal Limited Art Editions.

During the panel discussion, the speakers will talk about the printing process and their experiences working with celebrated artists like Mr. Johns and others in the field, including Jim Dine, Kiki Smith and Robert Rauschenberg.

The Katonah Museum of Art is located at 134 Jay St. For more information, call 232-9555 or visit katonahmuseum.org.
