Lockwood Dennis

(American, born 1937, died 2012)

Late Northwest artist Lockwood Dennis was known for his body of colorful woodcut prints. His art often depicted industrial landmarks and landscapes that have a tension between man-made and natural elements. Over his forty-five-year career, Dennis drew inspiration from varied traditions such as German Expressionist prints, vintage cast-metal toys, Japanese woodblock prints, comic art, and WPA era design from the late 1930s.
