Trained in landscape architecture and urban planning and a self-taught screen printer, Todd Stewart works by printing identical images many times withing a given space until a composition emerges.  The pieces are built “by exposing the control and precision of illustration to the unpredictability and chance inherent to the printmaking process.”  His Cityscape series explores the landscape of both well-known and obscure cities; most are places Stewart has not physically visited.  “I am acutely aware of how construction -with regards to both structure and meaning-informs my work.  These abstract land and cityscapes embody both serenity and instability, resulting in dreamlike tension from which subjective narratives can be born.  Working from a base of imagery culled internally-from memory, dreams, past experience-and externally-from my immediate surroundings-I create pieces that consciously allow for open interpretation and multiple perspectives.”  The works “reflect a search for meaning in unfamiliar landscapes.”  Stewart’s work is available online at his Etsy shop.
