Printmaker Justin Luis Diaz's work confronts the struggles of creating and preserving the unique and fleeting artist's mark through concerns and limitations specific to the medium of printmaking. Woodcut prints, reversed paintings on assorted translucent surfaces, artist books, wood carvings and textured enamel inks are some of the modes Diaz inhabits within his widely varied practice. Through these modes, Diaz pulls from a vast pool of imagery, ranging anywhere from enduring themes of nature or non-objective abstract expressionism, to fleeting imagery referencing Japanese robots, Anime, or human anatomy. Diaz's work may be found in various collections and he has exhibited nationally in Los Angeles and New York City.
