Emily Henretta at Room East is the Daily Pic by Blake Gopnik
The Daily Pic: Emily Henretta's woodcut captures technology's fragility.
This is a detail from "Caesura" by Emily Henretta, on view now at Room East in New York. The piece is a woodcut printed on copper-green rice paper, and what I especially like about it is the way Henretta uses the crudest, most primitive printmaking technique to render a circuit board, that symbol of technological sophistication. What with Henretta's rips and the glitches in her printing, something seems wrong in our brave new world.
