Jim Meyer (American)
Based in Minneapolis, MN
Jim Meyer uses rich and colorful images in his woodblock prints inspired by regional landscapes, the ocean, mountains and Lake Superior, Most of Meyer's prints are multi-block woodcuts or reduction prints.
The woodblock print, as a medium, uses materials and processes that are particularly well suited to interpreting the landscape. Meyer’s aim is to make prints that people will enjoy, have a growing affection for, and want to make part of their lives. Multi-block woodcuts are printed from a separate block for each color in the design. The blocks are all cut and printed in registration so that each block and color line up with the others as closely as possible. Reduction prints are made by printing a series of colors on each print from just one block. After each color is printed, its surface area on the block is cut away before the next color is applied.
Jim Meyer exhibits and is collected nationally.
