I am excited to share a collection of new woodcuts from 2012 at Davidson Galleries this THURSDAY, DEC 6,
6-8pm. The collection of over 20 prints titled 'Nylon Letdown, Descending with a Faulty Parachute' is
composed of a majority of new work (not even on my website yet), intermingled with a few hits from the past.
Hope to see you there!

> Woodcuts by CHARLES SPITZACK
> Nylon Letdown: descending with a faulty parachute is Charles Spitzack's first solo show at Davidson
Galleries and is comprised of over twenty woodcut prints. Spitzack graduated from Cornish College of
Art, Seattle, WA in 2010 with a focus on Print Arts & Drawing. In his work, one can see influences of the
Grosvenor School of Art, especially the work of Cyril Power (1872 - 1951) and Sybil Andrews (1898-1992),
two from the group of dynamic British avant-garde printmakers, known for their graphic images of figures
and objects in motion. Spitzack too is drawn to the representation of the human body to express movement
and emotion. His technique makes effective use of the bold character of the woodcut medium. Many of the
artist's images show the common man at work, a theme addressed by early 20th century print artists.
