Tom Huck

Tom Huck (born 1971) is a visual artist best known for his large scale satirical woodcuts. He lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri where he runs his own press, Evil Prints.

He is a regular contributor to BLAB! of Fantagraphics and was the illustrator of The Roots' "Phrenology" album art in 2003. His work draws heavily upon the influence of Albrecht Dürer, Jose Guadalupe Posada, R. Crumb, and Honore Daumier. Often associated with a movement within contemporary American printmaking known as outlaw printmaking, Huck's work pushes the boundaries of technique and taste in his chosen medium, the woodcut. Other outlaw printmakers include Bill Fick, Richard Mock, Sue Coe, Sean Star Wars, and Cannonball Press.

From 1995 to 2005, Huck created two woodcut folios: "2 Weeks in August: 14 Rural Absurdities" and "The Bloody Bucket". 2 Weeks in August: 14 Rural Absurdities, a thematically unified suite of 14 large woodcut prints, depicted 14 bizarre folk tales that allegedly occurred in Huck's hometown of Potosi, Missouri. The inspiration for this work stems from the strong influence of portfolios of prints throughout the genre of printmaking's history, most notably Albrecht Dürer's "Apocalypse" and Francisco Goya's "Los Caprichos". The "2 Weeks" suite was produced in three years from 1995 to 1998. His second body of work, "The Bloody Bucket", was based on violent legends surrounding a bar of that name in or around his hometown of Potosi. "The Bloody Bucket" comprises 10 large scale woodcuts, executed between 1999 and 2005.

Huck's woodcut prints are included in numerous public and private collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Saint Louis Art Museum, Milwaukee Art Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Fogg Art Museum, and New York Public Library. Tom Huck is represented by Baer Ridgway Exhibitions in San Francisco.
