Artwork of the Day: Fertile by David Hoke

"Fertile" by David Hoke

Today’s Artwork of the Day is “Fertile,” a wood cut (28″ x 19″) by Artexpo New York 2011 exhibitor David Hoke.

David has been a print maker at Bucks County Creative Concepts since 1992. He works in intaglio, lithography, mono prints, colographs—and his main form of print making: wood cut reductions. When forming his reduction prints, he destroys the wood block to create the image.

“The best thing about this art form is there are so many different techniques you can use. I use imagery and line to create movement, depth and energy. The abstract images created with these techniques are of natural forms seen in nature. They can be seen as big (universe) or small (cellular) and at our scale. Either way you see it (big or small) all things are created from the same building blocks. These building blocks look very similar big or small.”

David has claimed numerous awards for his work, including:

  • Doylestown Art League, Best Mixed Media Award, 2009
  • NOVA Galaxy art show, Best of Show, 2007
  • Shad Fest Poster Auction, Best Fish Theme, 2007
  • Perkins Center for the Arts, Juror’s Award, 2006
  • Doylestown Art League, Juror’s Award, 2006
  • Johnson & Johnson Purchase Prize, at Hunterdon Museum of Art, 2004
