RICHARD MOCK



Born 1944 in Long Beach, California; died in New York City on July 28, 2006
At the time of his residency at UNO (April 1-3 and June 23, 1986), Richard Mock was known for his Linocut Social Commentary Prints, which appeared in the editorial pages of the New York Times between 1978 and 1996. Prints of this type could be seen locally at Gallery 72 run by Robert D. Rogers. The four lithographs printed by Gary Day and students Sue Sudbeck and Wendy Wiggs represent a new abstract turn for the artist and the results, observed Timothy Cohrs of Arts Magazine (April 1986), was "a kind of five-legged figure and a hairy plate, but also a wry comment on '50s design forms and on neo-primitivism."
