Jean-Marc Superville Sovak is a multidisciplinary artist and teaching professional whose work deeply involves his life and the community around him. His current project, “a-Historical Landscapes”, involves altering 19th century landscape engravings to include contemporaneous images borrowed from Anti-Slavery publications. Jean-Marc’s work has been included in the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection, and has been exhibited at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park and Manifesta 8 Biennial in Murcia, Spain.

This antique engraving by William Bartlett from 1839 depicts the American Picturesque scenery at Lake George, a famed spot for Hudson River School artists like Thomas Cole and Asher Durand. The image superimposed by the artist is taken from abolitionist John G. Whittier’s “A Sabbath Scene” from 1854 which criticized in verse the hypocrisy of a church minister complicit in the arrest of a fugitive slave. All prints are unique works of art signed by the artist.
