My work contains images of stars, charts, and maps. Few of the images correspond to existing information. In the course of looking at and thinking about the images, new meaning is created. How is it that we connect diverse information together to make meaning? How do we decide which words or images best represent what we are thinking, communicating, or feeling? The connections we do form are fluid. They change as we encounter new information. These networks of information are able define where we are physically, mentally, and emotionally. In searching for my own place, I also ask: Where are you?

William Nussbaum hails from the outskirts of a small town in the Northwestern United States. During his undergraduate studies at the University of Idaho, he was drawn into the world of printmaking. Since then he has explored techniques both traditional and contemporary. In his continuing pursuit of printmaking, he trained two years at the Print Art Research Center located in Seoul. Nussbaum’s cultural and artistic experience in Seoul played a key role in his transition into a professional printing position with Island Press of Washington University in St. Louis.

He is currently working for a fine art publisher in St. Louis and building a new studio.
