James W. Hubbard

My art education has been a life-long passion. As a child, I was always experimenting with unconventional materials. Today my playfulness is a bit more focused and refined. Since retiring as an elementary art teacher in June 2008, I have concentrated on creating a portfolio of original limited edition art prints. I am currently artist-in-residence at Robin Run Retirement Community, Indianapolis where I work with a group of talented seniors. I am the 2017-19 President of Indiana Artists

About My Work:

Intaglio & block prints have a timeless and classic appeal. I employ a personal calligraphy using the aesthetic sensibility and technology of prior ages and cultures. My knowledge of art history informs my close attention to the involved processes of etching and block printing. I love the three dimensional, sculptural feel of scribing paths of divergent lines onto varnished copper or carving long furrows into cork. I enjoy hearing the hissing viscosity of ink as I wipe it across rich copper plate or roll it onto a cork surface. The sequential and layered nature of printmaking is the perfect means for building a grammar of personal expression that suggests the mood of my central subject. I relish the surprise of pulling a print from the press and discovering that the image and paper have become one. I appreciate the evolving, organic process of bringing an image to life.
