As the original pioneer of alternative printmaking since 1970, Dan Welden has been in the forefront of ‘health and safety’ in the arts. As co-author of ‘PRINTMAKING IN THE SUN’ and director of Hampton Editions, Ltd., his 50 plus years of collaboration include artists such as Willem de Kooning, Eric Fischl, Kiki Smith, and Dan Flavin. He has received international recognition through his residencies in China, Belgium, Cuba, Peru New Zealand, Australia and other countries.
“It is through a sense of ‘awareness’ that I experience my art. When I create with various marks, the colors and forms become kindred to me much like an orchestra conductor hearing the energy of music. My act of creating a symphonic painting resonates when there is no ego separating that birth of pure energy.”
