This new volume explores the incredible body of art from Graphicstudio (GS), the print atelier at the University of South Florida that has housed artists including Louise Bourgeois, Jim Dine, Alex Katz and Roy Lichtenstein. Founded in 1968, the studio has developed an international reputation and work produced at GS can now be found in private and museum collections across the US and throughout Europe.

This volume presents over 109 artworks by 45 GS artists including Chuck Close, Guillermo Kuitca, Roy Lichtenstein, Christian Marclay, Philip Pearlstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha and Kiki Smith. The range of artworks work includes etchings, photo- and direct gravures, inkjets, cyanotypes, lithographs, woodcuts and screen prints, as well as sculpture in bronze, concrete, basalt and cast epoxy resin.

Through interviews with seven artists and printmakers, including Janaina Tschäpe, Trisha Brown, Christian Marclay, Keith Edmier, Teresita Fernández, Vik Muniz and Allan McCollum, curator Jade Dellinger examines a number of key GS projects. These illustrated case studies show how the ideas for works came about and the unique process and approach of GS and its printmakers in collaborating with artists in the development of unique works of art.

The volume also features four illustrated interviews with the current and past GS directors, including Alan Eaker, Margaret A. Miller and Hank Hine and former GS master printer Tom Pruitt.

The accompanying exhibition opens February 1, 2014 at Tampa Museum of Art with further venues tbc
