SNAP Gallery invites members and guests to Present Density from German artist, Gabriela Jolowicz. In this series of work, Gabriela depict the everyday, modern life in an ancient printmaking technique, woodcut. Her large-scale woodcut prints are filled with immense detail and personal accounts of the artist’s day-to-day life, which viewers from the modern world can easily identify with. These everyday banal occurrences take focus in Jolowicz’s elaborately cluttered but intriguingly detailed prints, all which use engaging perspective and compositions.

Gabriela Jolowicz was born in Salzgitter, Germany. Her studies led from Communication Design to Book Arts/Graphic Design with the focus on Illustration and Printmaking. In 2008 the LUBOK press from Leipzig published her woodcut series as a book titled Megabillig, printed from original woodblocks. She won the First Prize of the International Artprize Holzschnitt Heute (Woodcut Today) of the Stiftung Kunst, Kultur und Bildung Ludwigsburg (D) in 2012. Two years later she was awarded a honourable mention by the XVII the German International Exhibition of Graphic Art in Frechen (D). Her woodcuts have been shown in many international exhibitions, including the International Print Centre New York, the Museo Nacional de la Estampa in Mexico City and the Museum der bildenden Kuenste in Leipzig. The artist currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Opening Reception: June 5, 7-9 pm. Artist’s talk: 6 pm.
