I'll add Charles Harper to my list of artists to show my screenprinting class next week. He created a series of screenprints of stylized birds for the Ford Times magazine in the early 1950's. Hugely popular, these serigraphs were later reproduced in a book called Birds and Words. Charles Harper said, "When I am asked to give a name to the way I work, I call it minimal realism. Wildlife art without the fuss and feathers. I don't try to put everything in - I try to leave everything out. I think flat, simple, hard-edge and funny...I see exciting shapes, color combinations, patterns, textures, fascinating behavior and endless possibilities for making interesting pictures. And so I have never counted the feathers in the wings, for that is not what my pictures are about. I just count the wings."
