Pub. Date:

A visual invitation to explore the imagination of a master printmaker.


A scrapbook of printmaker Chris Orr’s observations and ongoing preoccupations, The Multitude Diaries presents 240 of the artist’s drawings from the last twenty years. A prodigious draftsman, Orr introduces in his drawings a cast of characters, artifacts, and symbols that appear and reappear against fictional and real backdrops, whether river, street, or skyline. Often rehearsals for his prints and paintings, these drawings, when combined, form a visual labyrinth that reveals both the potential of the drawing-book as a place for experimentation and the panoramic scope of Orr’s work. The Multitude Diaries provides an invaluable look at the artist’s methods and creative evolution.
