end of the school year – intaglio

Satellites for Redon Satellites for Redon

This semester I learned more about printmaking in my required intaglio class, taught by artist Lisa Hamilton. I enjoyed learning the process and different methods, but am not entirely happy with the work I produced in the class. BUT, now I feel more capable of revisiting the images and perhaps giving them a go again, this time with everything I learned this semester behind me instead of ahead.

Crepuscular Nesting Birds

The above three pictures are from my favorite printmaking project: collagraphs. It was cheap! Especially compared to buying zinc plates. I enjoyed this project because it felt very freeing. It was like playing. I just cut and pasted till I felt I had created something potentially interesting.
