James Denmark
The Family, Original Lithograph Colorful Collage Effect

1987

About

Original hand drawn, limited edition lithograph of 100 prints by James Denamark, printed using hand lithography on Arches paper 100% acid free. Rich, vivid multi color composition comprised of colored papers, printed fabric, wallpaper, magazine clippings, textures in a printed collage effect depicting an African American family portrait of a mother, father, baby and younger sibling. Bright coral, rose pink, warm reds, yellows complimented with lavender, cool blue and white, silver, and Matisse inspired black silhouette cutout forms for arms, hands and faces. The juxtaposition of bright attractive colors and collage-like shapes actively engage the viewer's eye and curiosity. James Denmark, born in Winter Haven, Florida in 1936 was raised in an artistic family - his grandmother, a wire sculptor and quilt artist, exposed him to color and form at an early age. He was also influenced by his grandfather, a bricklayer noted for his unique custom design molds. Denmark has a natural feeling for the improvisational medium of collage, developing his own unique signature style. Utilizing brightly hand colored papers, fabric and textures, Denmark creates compositions that reflect African American heritage and culture. Denmark has had over 60 one-man exhibitions and has participated in numerous group shows. Works of art by James Denmark are a part of well recognized private and corporate collections in the USA as well as in Mexico, South Africa, Europe, Japan and Africa, including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Denmark has received numerous awards and recognition including the 39th Annual Printing Industry Award given by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, The Living Legends Award presented by the National Urban League.
