Rhys Himsworth is the Director of Painting and Printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar, where he recently exhibited his latest body of work at the Katara Art Center. Working across a range of media, he mixes natural elements with the machine made to create hybrids that have a dialog between the new and the obsolete, the automated and the intuitive, and the organic and systematic. His practice as an artist is a dialogue between new media and the language and philosophy that exists within printmaking at a watershed moment in the medium's history.
