Artist Judy Chicago has made important contributions to contemporary art in the last half of the twentieth century. Her concerns for feminism, human rights, and holocaust memory suffuse her work with personal meaning.
At Graphicstudio, Chicago created Voices from the Song of Songs, a portfolio of six images and six text pages. She worked with Marcia Falk’s new translation of the ancient biblical text, which emphasizes its human and erotic nature as well as mutuality of desire.
The images fuse the heliorelief photographic woodblock method with lithography, while the text pages in both English and Hebrew are rendered in heliorelief for the beautiful background gradations and polymer plastic relief for the text, along with handcoloring by the artist.
Voices from the Song of Songs "... is a print series of stunning but carefully concealed virtuosity, which is accessible in a fashion which few contem-porary artists are able to achieve. All those who have felt the emotion of romantic love will find something that speaks to them.” — Edward Lucie-Smith
