Jeb Loy Nichols: The Country Soul Brotherhood

Jeb Loy Nichols is an American-born self-taught artist, singer, songwriter, and musician currently living in Wales. The monoprints in this show are the result of two processes: screen printing and hand-rubbed lino cuts.  The backgrounds are screen printed onto paper and then the foreground is hand rubbed from a lino cut.  The paper is acid free and 100% recycled. The prints are the third chapter in an ongoing series entitled Here Comes Everybody.  The first group, The Ghost Yard, was a collection of early hip-hop artists.  The second group, The Way Out Is The Way In, was a collection of jazz musicians.  With this new chapter, The Country Soul Brotherhood, Jeb is looking at the dark end of the street, the place where Country and Soul meet.
