The core of Jill Mosers exhibit Editions is The Introvert, a 50-page artists book that mixes poems by Charles Bernstein with her handpainted works on printmaking paper. An artists book is something that you hold and read, says Moser, whose work hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. So the relationship between the images and the words was really important to me.
Moser, primarily a painter, began working with printmakers several years ago, and the influence can clearly be seen in her work. Her prints, also on view, are comprised of broad, free-flowing brush strokes and an occasional line; these were made with oil paint applied to a plate, which was then run through the press and hand-painted again.
