Artist Statement:
Using the mechanics of the machine to help guild the process of the print.

My current studio practice is based on the construction and deconstruction of modular type. By using the Vandercook 232P letterpress machine, Alpha-Blox & Futura Schmuck woodcut fonts to construct shapes, letters, words & phrases then deconstructing them into the abstract by rearranging the prints, tearing and wheat pasting to create layers and movement. The simplicity of breaking the alphabet down into its most basic elements and allowing the assembly of these shapes into seemingly endless combinations appeals to my analog self.

Neu Haus Press was founded in 1996 by Chris Chandler when he acquired his first Vandercook Press in Venice Beach, CA. Through the years his love, talent, knowledge and collection of this vintage craft has grown. From 30 years working as a tour manager and sound engineer for bands he has had the privilege of sharing his passion of letterpress with musicians in collaborations with their art work. Residing in Portland, OR with his wife and two children, Chris is able to expand his printing portfolio and create letterpress art." (Promo Copy)
