Kent Ambler pares it down to the essence in his one man show at American Folk at 64 Biltmore Ave in Downtown Asheville.
Known for the complexity of his woodblock prints….layers and layers of inked blocks coupled with details not commonly found in woodblock artwork, Kent has created a series of prints using one beautifully carved block pressed into Japanese papers.
The interplay of the images, stark ink and luscious paper highlight Kent’s subjects with a simplicity which is rare for him, but not unique to the art of woodblock printmaking. Kent lives in South Carolina and has been the recipient of many awards and South Carolina Arts Council grants, his subjects are autobiographical common objects and subjects: bugs, dogs, birds, buildings’…the things he surrounds himself with and finds beauty in that the rest of us oft overlook.
He uses soy inks and a Japanese paper is called Okawara. “ I like the look of black ink on this particular paper. The paper is thinner, has translucence, but is tougher; very fibrous and a bit off-white.”
The show opens on line at www.amerifolk.com at noon on Tuesday, September 30. The show opens in the Gallery on Thursday October 2nd, and a reception for Kent Amber will take place Friday, October 3, from 5-8 pm.
