Jasper Johns & John Lund
Masters in the Print Studio
August 30 - November 16, 2014
Reception: Thursday, September 11, 2014 5:30-7:30 p.m.
An extraordinary, little-known story unfolds in the exhibition Jasper Johns & John Lund: Masters in the Print Studio. Over the past 30 years, Johns and Lund have forged a rare artistic collaboration: side-by-side, master printer Lund assists one of America’s foremost living artists to achieve precisely the effects he seeks in his prints, 47 of which are featured in the exhibition.
Johns and Lund began working together in 1973 at Universal Limited Art Editions on Long Island. A decade later, Lund became integral to John’s printmaking process as the exclusive master printer to work on the artist’s intaglio prints. In 1996, Lund established a private print studio on John’s rural Connecticut property and became his on-site master printer. Together, they have created more than 70 editions, the majority of which use etching and aquatint.
Organized by the Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, New York, Jasper Johns and John Lund is the first museum exhibition to examine these two master’s working relationship. It explores process with never-before exhibited proofs and plates. Lund’s personal photographs of Johns working in the studio are also on display.

Photographer Steven Rockefeller’s Chill Zone transports viewers to another place and time through the artists’ visual environment. The long-exposure high definition video “pictures” present a variety of calming images that immerse the viewer within the scene for extended periods. Images fill a variety of screens that enable participants to escape to the Virgin Islands, explore the landscape of Norway, admire the majestic Hudson River or walk the streets of Shanghai while seated or lying on comforting furniture. The soothing and reassuring experience invites the viewer to release the tensions of the everyday while blissfully focusing on the beauty and serenity of unusual, mysterious and exotic locations.
