Lockwood Dennis

(American, born 1937, died 2012)

Northwest artist Lockwood Dennis (1937-2012) 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.
