JOHN ROBERT CRAFT AND THE CMY SUITES
John Robert (Jack) Craft lives with his family on a commercial cattle ranch in the Texas Panhandle. The ranch is located 70 miles south east of Amarillo, Texas. His art work consist of solid cast-iron sculpture and prints that are made utilizing his sculpture as a tool to create abstract images that reflect the mass and the dimensions of the sculpture. The work is an art of place. The sculpture is abstract work that is grounded in geology and the metallurgy of the artist's material of choice: ferrous metals, and the art reflects the solid values of ranch life. The prints suggest an imagery of vast light pollution free night skies, or micrographs of molecular or cellular structures
His recent prints, which were co-copublished with Flatbed Press, are three suites of etchings titled the CMY Suites. Each suite is presented in a wooden box with a cast sculpture created by Craft. Read more about the project here: CMY
