Throughout his 20-plus career, artist Tom Hück’s often brash sociopolitical commentary has drawn from great satirical artists like Hogarth and Daumier. His technique, on the other hand, is inspired by the famed German woodcut artists of the Northern Renaissance, including Albrecht Dürer and Martin Schongauer. Rival Cuts: Process and Technique in Prints by Tom Hück and Albrecht Dürer, on view at the Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University from February 16-June 9, 2019, brings a selection of Hück’s woodcuts together with works by Dürer, his printmaking hero.
In conjunction with this exhibition, Tom Hück will be in residence February 16-24, thanks to the Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center Artist-in-Residency program and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
