Out of the Fog/Pink Window by Bill BookoverI was trained as an architect and worked for almost 4 decades restoring and preserving historic buildings and landscapes. I discovered screenprinting 10 years ago and fell in love with printmaking.

As a printmaker, I’m drawn to paper and water-based inks, rather than to paints and brushes on canvas. My work is an engagement with my materials and ideas of order. When confronted with a blank page, I respond in one of two ways: either I develop a pattern of abstract geometry, or I develop a grammar of expressionist gestures. These two approaches are present in this work, in which I explore the creative possibilities of geometry and expressionist gesture in a tension between opposites: painterly against geometric, monochrome against color, spontaneous against planned.
