Jaime Knight, Assistant Professor, Printmedia Program
Jonathan Herrera Soto is a print-based studio artist. He graduated with a BFA from the Minneapolis College in Art and Design in 2017. As a printmaker, Jonathan Herrera Soto’s practice is in service to the ceremony of material exploration. He visually articulates relationships between collective memory and historical instances of state-sponsored violence and trauma inflicted on politicized bodies by constructing print-based objects, installations, and environments that echo ghosts and lived experiences of those who are no longer with us. Print-based processes translate the content through symbolically revealing the act of remembering in producing tracings and impressions. Slicing open wounds into wood, burning the surface of lithostone with acid, and the crushing of ink on paper under immense pressure, re-animates acts of violence that carries through an art-object’s final presentation.
This event is presented by the BIPOC Virtual Open Print Studio.
