Cover | Elizabeth Addison

Q & Z (monoprint). Elizabeth Addison is an award-winning printmaker and installation artist. Her monoprints involve layers of meanings with the use of depth and complexity masquerading as something much simpler, incorporating imprints of everyday objects (keys, birth control dials, coins) and textures. Q & Z is from Addison’s dancing couples series. The couples in their carriage contain strong emotional content, and negative space is as important as positive. Addison’s prints are regularly featured at Kiss My Ring, 2514 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley. Visit her printmaking studio, Studio 1509, during East Bay Open Studios June 2, 3, 9 and 10, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Studio 1509 is located at 1509 San Pablo Ave. (at Cedar) in Berkeley.
