About the Artist
Nachmias creates multi-dimensional cast paper woodcuts and prints that celebrate the energy of urban life in expressionist images drawn from his own experiences as a musician, performer and artist.
The prints show him performing puppet shows, playing music and working as a printmaker. There are mandalas that use a circular format, with each devoted to a single subject including clowns and puppeteering. Many of the prints depict an individual in the city, and feature the density and intensity of city life.
These prints are expressionist in feeling, concentrating on the visual energy of black lines and strong color. They draw from the German Expressionist tradition, which looks at the life around us through the lens of personal emotion.
Woodcuts take on a three-dimensional quality, giving the images a tactile immediacy. The process involves carving a wood block very deeply, and then linking it up. While being made, each print takes on its own life, with its own capacity to evoke excitement, humor, and a sense of personal narrative.
